Urinetown, The Musical
Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann, Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis

January 25th - February 26th, 2022

2:00pm & 7:00pm

It's a privilege to pee. Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of capitalism, populism, corporate mismanagement, and musical theatre itself. In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. So when nature calls the citizens must pay to use the amenities. These public potties are regulated by Urine Good Company, a malevolent megacorporation that profits off of humanity's most basic needs. A hero emerges from the oppressed masses and decides that he's had enough. Our hero plans a revolution, restores Hope, and leads 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's wickedly modern wit sustains its ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
