It’s probably a safe bet to say that the musical “hit” of the Fringe will be Walmartopia. The show originated in, of all places, Madison, Wisconsin, and is having its NYC premiere at the Fringe. According to the press release, Walmartopia tells the story of “Vicki Latrell, a single mom who speaks out against her company’s working conditions and finds herself jettisoned to 2036, into a future where Wal-Mart dominates the entire world. Yes, the musical features the singing head of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton.” (Emphasis in the original!) You probably should get tickets quickly as this satire of big business should do big business at the box office.
