BWW Reviews: URINETOWN: THE MUSICAL is a Privilege to See

Two of my very favorite things are satire and black comedy.

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic's Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an earnest tale of love, greed and revolution, where hope always springs eternal!
