Mark Hollman's comedy, Urinetown, the Musical, uses pee to poke fun at Broadway, capitalism, bureaucracy and small-town politics, among other topics. The play is set in a water-starved future where the Urine Good Company is in charge of all things wiz and charges for the luxury of using a toilet. Urinetown is a penal colony where offenders who haven't paid their pee fees are sent. The trouble is, nobody ever comes back from Urinetown. Hmm, wonder what that means? 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Through June 27. Playhouse 1960, 6814 Grant Road. For information, call 713-58-STAGE or visit www.ph1960.com. $13 to $15.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 5. Continues through June 28, 2009
