Our picks this week: Urinetown, The Musical & Stayed On Freedom

Urinetown

Who: Studio 58
What: Urinetown: The Musical
Where: Studio 58 @ Langara College (100 West 49th Ave, Vancouver)
When: January 30-Feb 16
Why: The students of Langara College’s Studio 58 take on the Tony Award-winning satire in which a severe drought has given way to private toilets being outlawed and where a large corporation now holds a monopoly on all public washrooms. Greed, corruption, bureaucracy, and politics all get skewered in this irreverent musical. More information at studio58.ca¬†or purchase tickets online at Tickets Tonight.
