"I was pregnant with my second baby when they approached me to be in the show," McCune says. "I knew that I'd be nursing a baby, so when I read that Hope is bound and gagged, I thought, 'Oh great, I can be in a musical and I won't have to do much'." McCune seems to have caught the spirit of Urinetown's self-satirising jokiness. More seriously and sincerely, she describes herself as "an actor who sings, rather than a singer who acts" and "so very lucky" in her career. She's particularly fond of musicals because performing them "takes it up a notch".
