|Bill Coelius and Lusia Strus in The Truth About Santa.|
Even when you see scores of plays each year, there are some theatrical experiences that remain embedded in memory. I'll never forget the gut-busting laughter that erupted from me as I watched Urinetown when it was still a little Off-Broadway musical at the American Theatre of Actors back in 2001. I enjoyed it as much as I had The Producers, which I'd seen just a month earlier.
As much as I laughed that evening, I sat bewildered throughout most of The Truth About Santa, a muddled, wannabe satire from one-half of the Urinetown creative team, Greg Kotis. My review.
