In an 1889 essay, Oscar Wilde wrote, “Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” Such is the case with Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann’s acclaimed comedy Urinetown: The Musical, which, 15 years after its premiere, bears a notable resemblance to current events. Staged by the Dartmouth College Department of Theater, this Tony Award winner is not only a hilarious satire of musical theater but a serious examination of corporate influence, environmental issues and political theatrics. Professor Jamie Horton directs a 25-member cast, which transports viewers to a world in which water is under corporate control and citizens must pay to use sanctioned restrooms. A panel discussion on Tuesday delves into the play’s relevance in today’s world.
