One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, URINETOWN
is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a
time when water is worth its weight in gold. 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 he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead
them all to freedom!
Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, URINETOWN
is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from
scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical
could be, URINETOWN catapults the "comedic romp"? into
the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern
wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
