Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of social irresponsibility, populism, environmental collapse, privatization of natural resources, bureaucracy, municipal politics, and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.

Synopsis: In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! "This irreverently humorous “comedic romp” reinvigorates the very notion of what a musical could be, with wickedly modern wit and sustained unbridled laughter!"
