In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom. Mercyhurst University students perform and Brett D. Johnson, Ph.D., directs this hilarious musical at Taylor Little Theatre on Oct. 24-27. Book and lyrics by Greg Kotis; music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and $5 for youth and Mercyhurst students with ID. For tickets, call 814-824-3000 or visit Read more.
