“For anarchic, first-rate comic relief, get thee to Urinetown.”
Time Out New York

A water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission. Deciding he has had enough, a hero plans a revolution!

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, this hilarious musical is a satire on capitalism, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, politics, greed, and the musical theatre!
