Dinner And A Show With Fellow Alumni
Mar. 23, 2013-Join your fellow alumni for an intimate evening of dining and hilarity with an award-winning musical featuring UNLV students, alumni, and faculty.
Winner of three Tony Awards including “Best Musical,” the satirical comedy Urinetown recounts a city’s attempt to regulate water consumption by outlawing the use of private toilets. This hilarious musical exposes a world of greed, corruption, love, and revolution during a time when water is worth its weight in gold and private bathrooms are outlawed.
Residents of this Gotham-like city are required to use public restrooms that are regulated by a single malevolent company, which profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. During this time of bathroom repression, one hero decides he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead his fellow citizens to toilet freedom!
Watch a video from a 2006 production.
