Where did January go? Oh wait I know, It was flushed into memory exile courtesy of Urinetown. The Webster Theatre Guild celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2011, and the show they chose to commemorate the event was Urinetown. Yep … Urinetown. This former Broadway show is filled with raw humor, uncomfortable situations, borderline offensive material, and WTG did it right. Kudos to director J. Simmons and to the rest of the production team. I have not laughed so hard in a long time, and after the way 2011 closed I needed the palette cleansing weekend. WTG newcomer Andy Cooper and I tag-teamed the Set Design and I did the Artistic Painting for the show. Big props to the entire cast for a solid production, especially those that helped with the painting and set construction. Some members of the WTG (read: Stacie and Cathy for the death scene platform) found hidden talents, and for me, it certainly was an unexpected surprise (although … “is there and other kind?”) Below are some of the photos of the set starting out with Public Amenity #9. It’s one of the dirtiest, filthiest urinals in town, and was also fun to paint. (As was the rest of the set.)
