I love attending local college and university stage productions, partly because it’s such a wonderful reminder of my days as a theatre major – ah, the reassuring familiarity of Augustana College’s Potter Hall! - but also because the shows’ participants are generally involved with theatre because they truly want to be; with the possible exception of staff members, no one’s doing it just for the paycheck. (No one should ever be doing theatre for the paycheck, but that’s another issue entirely.)

St. Ambrose University’s "Urinetown": So Funny I Almost...

Since St. Ambrose University’s production of Urinetown at the Galvin Fine Arts Center has already closed, there’s probably not much point in a review. So consider this a thank-you note instead.

The show was terrifically staged and, almost across the board, vibrantly performed, but most inspiring of all, the audience was truly alive to it; Urinetown smashes the understood conventions of musical theatre to smithereens, and the Friday night crowd appeared positively delighted that it did. The show was a risk, and one that paid off big time.

Since 1990, I’ve attended more than 25 plays at Augustana College, yet I’ve never seen one that made better use of the Potter Hall stage than The Laramie Project.
