Milk, Milk, Lemonade

It seems like water is either elusive (drought) or obtrusive (floods). And, for something so plain, it sure is taken seriously. We're not knocking the importance of the wet stuff, but the musical comedy Urinetown does. It's a musical comedy that distorts and exaggerates a malevolent city's control over its citizens' water, which translates into a plot centered around the lowly port-a-potty. Urinetown is at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays Friday through October 14 at the Runway Theatre, 215 N. Dooley St. in Grapevine. Admission is $10 to $15. Call 817-488-4842 or visit
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Sept. 21. Continues through Oct. 14, 2007
