Yeast Nation 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through June 23
Price: $15-$22
Love and musicals have been creative partners for a long time, but three billion years ago, both were foreign concepts. Then, on the floor of the primal ocean, single-celled yeast are the dominant species on the half-baked earth. These yeast cells all share the name Jan, and they all eat nothing but salt. Salt is becoming more difficult to find, and all the Jans are starting to worry about what that means for the future. The spontaneous appearance of love, which is shared by two of the Jans, further threatens the yeast society. Something has to change, but what will it be? Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis' musical Yeast Nation has the irreverence and meta-nature of their earlier collaboration Urinetown, but with perhaps a little more optimism. New Line Theatre presents Yeast Nation at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (May 31 to June 23) at the Marcelle Theater (3310 Samuel Shepard Drive; www.newlinetheatre.com). Tickets are $15 to $22.
