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. I had more fun at the school’s production of this 2001 musical comedy than I have at nearly any other entertainment I’ve been to over the past few months. 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.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, which recently closed St. Ambrose University’s 2004-5 theatre season, is a tough play to produce effectively at the collegiate level: How do you present Tom Stoppard’s mordantly funny rumination on mortality and the meaninglessness of existence with performers this young?
