URINETOWN The Musical Opens At ArtFACTORY, February 13 Photo URINETOWN The Musical Opens At ArtFACTORY, February 13
by A.A. Cristi - Jan 31, 2020

What is URINETOWN? Well, it's a terrible title for a musical, that's for sure. artFACTORY takes you into the not-so-distant future, when a twenty-year drought has turned the Earth into a dystopian wasteland. With water regulated by the government, citizens are required to pay a fee at public facilities in order to a?oetake care of their personal business.a?? That's the general set up, but too much exposition can kill a plot, so you'll just have to see this ridiculous satire for yourselves. URINETOWN runs February 13 through March 1 at artFACTORY. We'd usually put some kind of attention-grabbing ploy to buy tickets here, but that seems kind of pointless because... who'd want to see a musical called a?oeURINETOWN?a?? anyway? Not me.

Jersey Boys opened this week to one of the most enthusiastic welcomes I have ever witnessed at NSMT.

The Houston Premiere of Ryan Scott Oliver and Hunter Foster's mind-blowing, multicultural myth-driven musical, JASPER IN DEADLAND, makes a splash-landing at artFACTORY, August 2 through 18! This rocking new musical follows seventeen-year-old Jasper, as he dives into a deep chasm of the earth in search of his missing best friend, Agnes. Plunging into the depths of the River Lethe, Jasper finds himself in Deadland, an afterlife-underworld that blends mythology, religion, and superstition from across the globe. He soon discovers that with every moment spent in Deadland, the residents forget their former lives. In his search for Agnes through the seven circles of Deadland, Jasper must conquer monstrous hurdles including the three-headed dog Cerberus, the Egyptian demon Ammut, Norse Gods Hel and Loki, and many more, all while fighting to hold on to his memories. Can Jasper escape the hereafter and return his friend to the living world, or will he join the dead forever?
