"The Bogus Boutique is a lifestyle brand featuring unique, brightly colored ceramic objects and status symbols. These everyday objects foretell the ironic codification of consumer culture as it embodies our current society. Questioning the notion that ordinary objects can become an ‘object of art,’ Bogus encourages a debate about authorship and originality, dissolving the distinction between sanctioned museum pieces and iconic everyday consumed objects."- David Bogus.

Phoenix Festival Theater in Urinetown, The Musical

  • March 1, 2, 8 & 9 at 7 PM
  • March 3 & 10 at 2 PM
  • Harford Community College, Chesapeake Theater

Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms. 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 that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards. LIVEatHarfordCC.com or 443-412-2211
