Urinetown - The Musical -
Author(s): Music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and book by Kotis
Urinetown is a satirical musical comedy that premiered in 2001. It satirizes the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, and municipal politics. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Winner of 3 Tony Awards.

What would it take for you to betray someone? Stamp collecting is far more risky than you think.
After their mother’s death, two estranged half-sisters discover a book of rare stamps that may include the crown jewel for collectors. One sister tries to collect on the windfall, while the other resists for sentimental reasons. In this gripping tale, a seemingly simple sale becomes dangerous when three seedy, high-stakes collectors enter the sisters’ world, willing to do anything to claim the rare find as their own. Theresa Rebeck’s Mauritius is a well-made, engrossing and unpretentious play rarely encountered on Broadway these days.

The Addams Family
Author(s): Music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice
This musical comedy is based upon The Addams Family characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night when they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.

Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30’s and 40’s.
