Urinetown - 2001 - Broadway

Set in a Gotham-like city overwrought by ecological disaster, Urinetown: The Musical is a tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its very weight in gold. A depletion of the earth?s water supply has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The privilege to pee is regulated by a single, malevolent corporation, which profits by charging admission for one of mankind?s most basic needs. Urinetown is directed by John Rando, with musical staging by John Carrafa, and features book and lyrics by Greg Kotis, and music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann.



Urinetown won 2002 Tony Awards? for Best Score, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Direction of a Musical.

“Arthur [in CAMELOT] is a man with strong hopes and plans that blow up in his face. SPAMALOT has a much happier ending because Arthur learns that life is too important to be taken seriously. Just whistle -that’s the thing. In CAMELOT Arthur doesn’t quite get there.” Award-winning actor Charles Shaughnessy is talking about his experience playing Arthur, King of the Britains, in two different musicals. Shaughnessy is poised to reprise his role as the monarch in the Ogunquit Playhouse’s SPAMALOT, which opens at the theatre’s new Leary Pavilion on June 16 and runs through July 10, 2021. He first appeared there in the Monty Python musical comedy in 2011 and also played Arthur in Lerner and Loewe’s CAMELOT at North Shore Music Theatre in 2005.
