When a terrible water shortage leads to a government ban on private toilets, a greedy company profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs -- until a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution. That's the story of Urinetown: The Musical, a hilarious and satirical tale of corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. The show's tuneful and irreverent score gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill. Urinetown's original Broadway run earned multiple Tony Awards. Learn More

The performers were great! However I would not recommend purchasing tickets for this event through Goldstar due to the fact that the tickets they blocked through the venue to sell at a discounted rate are obstructed view seats. This is not disclosed anywhere when you make the purchase. Therefore the performers on stage that I specifically came to see, I was not able to view during the whole performance.
When I requested other seats that weren't obstruced view I was told by the venue that those were the discounted seats I purchased through Goldstar and that they weren't able to relocate me to other seats. Very disappointed.
Relive those glory days of early Rock N' Roll with this tribute to Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly. This musical tribute will honor some of the biggest singing stars of the 20th century, including Bobby Vee and Roy Orbison.
The first set re-enacts the last performance of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa, February 2, 1959, known as "The Day The Music Died."
The second set features tributes to singing stars that were influenced by Buddy Holly - Bobby Vee and Roy Orbison. Bobby Vee and his band the Shadows filled in at the Moorhead Armory when the 3 stars were killed in a plane crash. They went on to sell 13 million records including hits like "Rubber Ball" and "Take Good Care Of My Baby." Roy Orbison, like Holly, was from west Texas and was heavily influenced by Holly...his first hit, Only The Lonely, came just one year after Holly's death.
The Buddy Holly tribute is performed by Jeff Boxell, veteran singer and guitarist who performed in the musical Buddy in the Twin Cities. Wayne Luchau (pronounced Loo-cow) performs as Richie Valens and Roy Orbison. The Big Bopper and Bobby Vee tributes are performed by Dick Dunkirk, original member of Bobby Vee and the Shadows, who were elected to the Mid-America Music Hall of Fame in 2005.
Generally regarded as the #1 tribute show in the nation, according to fans and critics who have seen the show, I Remember Buddy Holly & Roy Orbison is a show not to be missed!
