Urinetown

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 corporation that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Inspired by his love for the head of the malevolent corporation’s daughter, a hero rises from the people to lead them to revolution and, potentially, to freedom!

“audacious and exhilarating, riotously and intelligently arch…a defiant declaration of the power of theater.”  NY TImes

“Elevated silliness of the highest order that makes a gratifying case for the restorative return to knowing foolishness and the smartly absurd. The show winks at everything from Hamlet’s father’s ghost to West Side Story, from the revolutionary pretensions of Les Mis to the revivalist joy of Guys & Dolls.”  Newsday
