Best Theatrical Production 

Urinetown, UApresents; Hamlet, Arizona Repertory Theater

Readers Pick

High concept: Glamorous young hero struggles with a corrupt leader, but personal flaws result in his falling splat on the stage at play's end. That's the short version of our readers' two favorite theatrical productions this past season. Urinetown-the touring version of the recent, provocative Broadway musical-spilled black humor, an updated Brecht/Weill sensibility and the occasional potty joke across the Centennial Hall stage. Hamlet got an outstanding production out of the UA's Arizona Repertory Theater, and even if you didn't see Urinetown, Nat Cassidy as Shakespeare's melancholy Dane was enough to make you wet your pants.
