When a 20-year drought leads to a government ban on private toilets, a greedy company profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs -- until a hero decides he's had enough and rises up against the system. "Urinetown" is a musical, satirical tale of corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. The show's irreverent score gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill, and parodies musicals such as "The Cradle Will Rock" and "Les Misérables". The winner of three Tonys and two Obie Awards during its original Broadway run, "Urinetown" can be enjoyed at Anoka's Lyric Arts Main Street Stage. [less-]

With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series "Drunk History", the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the series has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally makes its way stateside. With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Camp Bar in St. Paul. [less-]
