Catherine and Andrew

Composer Andrew Rohn and writer Catherine Capellaro produced Walmartopia, their politico-musical comedy, in Madision, where it had two spectacular sold-out runs. The show won acclaim at the New York Fringe Festival and ultimately played off-Broadway at the Minetta Lane Theatre. Along with writing and producing musical comedies, they perfom as part of disco superstars VO5.

"A Brechtian invocation to get up and do something."

Walmartopia, the Musical, is the story of heroic single mom Vicki Latrell who stands up to her corporate employer and finds herself and her young daughter jettisoned to a future where Wal-Mart dominates the entire world (with the exception of Vermont) told through rousing song and dance. A hilarious look behind the smiley face of the postmodern workplace. YouTube Walmartopia sampler.

In the Beginning
An Evolutionary Musical Comedy, a retelling of the story of Adam and Eve with singing-and-dancing animals and a love triangle from Darwin! Zaney zoomorphic fun.

An unholy trinity of irreverent comedies with God-fearing show tunes that puncture creationists, George W. Bush, Rapture Christans, and intolerance of all stripes. Guaranteed to offend
and delight the righteous and the damned. Dick Cheney is the Anti-Christ

Before Walmartopia there was Temp Slave, a rollicking musical tribute to America's low-wage workers, a satiric demolition of the myths of the modern economy.
