A hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself, Urinetown is hysterically funny and touchingly honest, providing a fresh perspective of one of America's greatest art forms.
The Ridgefield Theater Barn is located at 37 Halpin Lane. Seating is cabaret style and audiences are encouraged to bring food drinks to enjoy before the show. Doors open one hour prior to curtain. Tickets, both for individual performances and for the entire season, are available at ridgefieldtheaterbarn.org.
