Last night, “Urinetown,” McIntosh’s annual spring musical, left the audience doubled over laughing at its opening night. Straying away from previous McIntosh productions, “Urinetown” focuses on comedy, and according to the audience the risk paid off.

“Urinetown” depicts a wasteland where water is so scarce that private restrooms are outlawed. Meanwhile, public bathrooms are costly and anger poor locals. As a result, the musical focuses on the conflict between poor restroom users and the greedy restroom owners. This comical setup leads to some hilarious situations, and undoubtedly contributes to the overwhelming theme of comedy.

The census from the audience that night was that the production was unbelievably funny. Freshman Nanami Lillie shared, “It was so funny. And Sally was super hilarious; she portrayed the character really well. She was really self aware of the musical, and the sarcasm worked really well.”

Sharing her sentiment, Sophomore Marie Obsitnik said, “It was really funny and the whole cast was picked really perfectly for their part. I would totally recommend going to see it.”

The cast members also specifically recommended seeing the production.

Soph0more Lydia Campbell said, ““Everyone should come see it because it’s the most hilarious musical I have ever seen or been in. I play Becky Two Shoes who is this poor, schizophrenic, crazy character in the show. She was really fun to play. It’s such a fun show, and it kinda makes fun of musicals, so if you don’t really like musicals this is the one for you.”

Meanwhile, Sophomore Jack Choat said, “The actors spent 3 months working on it. Buswell has also been working on this show for years, and he’s put more thought and time in this show than any other show in 7 years. “Urinetown” has won the most Shuler awards, and that’s why Buswell has been working so hard on it.”

In similar fashion, Senior Leonora Lillie said, “You should go see it, because it’s a music that makes fun of musicals. My favorite part is Lydia and Clay’s song. They are the funniest duo I’ve ever seen on stage. They light up the stage.”
