Shirley swings at Shifty's

Act 1 climaxes with the entire company vocalizing different lyrics simultaneously, and "Urinetown" authors Greg Kotis and Mark Hollman wisely reprise that device late in Act 2 when Baum, Ali and Gregg Bilyeau skillfully overlap their voices with Taylor and Pearson on "Why Did I Listen to that Man?"

Those numbers ring out impressively, but the musical's showstopper is the gospel-flavored "Run, Freedom, Run" featuring Taylor and the rebellious ensemble.

The Tony Award-winning musical continues at the First Presbyterian Education Center, 64 Oswego St., in B'ville at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday March 25 and 26. Tickets cost $20, $17 for students; 877-4183; baldwinsvilletheatreguild.org.
