Album Notes
Walmartopia Synopsis

IT’S MORNiNG AT WAL-MART. Workers scurry around preparing for the morning meeting and cheer [“A New Age Has Begun”].
We meet Vicki Latrell, a hardworking single mom who hopes to rise up the company ranks and make a better life for her
daughter, Maia. Maia also works at Wal-Mart after school and weekends, but she’s involved in a union organizing effort with
janitor Miguel Hernandez. Maia and Miguel are convinced that working at Wal-Mart is a dead end and argue that it’s time to
unite and demand better treatment [“American Dream”].
Meanwhile, Wal-Mart executives are gathering for the morning meeting at headquarters [“March of the Executives”]. CEO
Scott “Scooter” Smiley is reeling from the bad press Wal-Mart is getting concerning the environment, workers’ rights,
and the world’s largest sex-discrimination lawsuit. He launches a new public relations campaign to demonstrate that the
company values women.
At the motel where Vicki lives with Maia, Vicki reassures Maia that Wal-Mart will promote her and that their life will get
better [“Baby Girl”].
Smiley and Dr. Normal, Wal-Mart’s research director, meet to discuss a top-secret invention, a time portal, which they
believe will give Wal-Mart the edge they need to dominate the world [“The Future is Ours”].
At a meeting at Hooters with her manager, Tim Pearson, Vicki finds out that she has been passed over again in favor of an
inexperienced male colleague. Disillusioned and angry, Vicki storms back to work. Pearson has asked her and Maia to sing at
a corporate shareholders’ meeting as part of Smiley’s new campaign [“A Woman’s Place”]. Vicki decides to go to Bentonville
to sing in hopes that she can tell her story to the board of directors.
At corporate headquarters, Dr. Normal, director of research, reveals his invention. He has used the portal to transport the
living head of Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart, into the present. Walton exhorts the board of directors to loosen up [“Flash
Them Bootstraps”]. Vicki and Maia are ushered in to meet the board for a photo op, and they anger Walton by complaining
about working conditions. Vicki and Maia have now seen too much. Dr. Normal suggests throwing them through the portal
into the future – the perfect solution [“Heave-Ho”]. End Act i.

AS ACT II STARTS, Vicki and Maia find themselves 30 years in the future. Bentonville, Arkansas has become the capital of the
world, which is dominated by Wal-Mart [“Walmartopia”]. Vicki and Maia are seized and thrown into a holding cell. There they
meet Zeb, an actor who is in trouble for criticizing Wal-Mart-controlled art. They are both granted a reprieve when Counselor
James comes looking to replace performers in Wal-Arts. Vicki and Maia undergo a conversion [“One-Stop Salvation”].
Smiley, who has aged 30 years, still rules the Wal-Mart empire. He requests a meeting with Lawrence, the director of Wal-
Mart. Smiley wants a worldwide telecast that will convince the public that it’s acceptable to invade Vermont, the only part of
the world that has remained Wal-Mart free.
Vicki, Maia and Zeb are cast in the broadcast as terrorists from Vermont [“Socialist Paradise”]. A patriotic anthem sung by
Wal-Mart soldiers reduces the terrorists to jelly [“These Bullets are Freedom”]. Vicki and Maia confront the director about
the jingoism of the show, and he locks up Maia and threatens to send her to the front if anything goes awry.
Vicki and Zeb witness a “public readjustment” led by Sam Walton, where a Vermonter is injected with desire for Wal-Mart
products [“Consume”]. During Walton’s speech it becomes clear that Vermont, Zeb’s home, will be destroyed in Wal-Mart’s
march to control the world. Zeb asks Vicki to help him subvert the performance. Vicki wrestles between her desire to speak
out and her desire to keep Maia safe [“What kind of Mother?”].
During the performance, the “terrorists” enter and begin the show as planned. Then Zeb and Maia drop their weapons. The
rest of the cast is confused but tries to carry on. Maia reveals her secret weapon: She has captured Sam Walton’s head
and demands a chance to speak. Vicki begs people to see what Wal-Mart has done to the world and asks them to look inside
themselves to see the power of creativity [“Outside the Big Box”]. One by one, the Wal-Mart leaders are taken down,
and our heroes step into a future free from Wal-Mart’s domination.

I really kick myself for not seeing Walmartopia while in NYC while it was playing. The CD is excellent! It has a vast variety of musical styles and in many ways reminds me of the feeling that 'Bat Boy!' gave me.

Walmartopia hasn't left my CD player in weeks...the songs cycle around in my head all the time :)

This is the kind of show that I adore. Funny, unafraid, clever. I personally boycotted the big "W" years ago after hearing about maybe one-tenth of their evils, which is what drove me to purchase this disc. ANY fan of musical theatre would be hard-pressed to find much fault with this trippy tale! All that, AND a full-color booklet with lyrics, synopsis, photos and more! THUMBS UP!

Born for the fringe festival circut - this off beat, campy, funny, touching, quirky shot at America's largest retailer may not have made it to Broadway - but the cast recording is as good as any from shows running there now! The show benefoted from an outstanding cast - far superior than one normally working for scale at the Minetta Lane Theater - and the recording outshines what happened on stage!

The vocals are great, musicians fantastic, and arrangemnts brilliant. It's gonna be a collectors item - snap one up soon!
