Great fun. Good music, good voices, excellent ensemble and staging. Very funny and over the top in a good way. A big show in a smallish theater for a reasonable price - a rare goodie.

I wouldn't have gone to see this production if I hadn't known someone (one of the principals) in the cast, because the name turned me off. Now, I'm so glad that I did... continued

Description

Urine for a good time!

“It’s a Privilege to Pee” — in Urinetown and in this smart, funny musical about pay toilets, individual freedoms, and corporate mismanagement. Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score, this playful show cajoles us to laugh at ourselves.

The show is set in a world plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. At the mercy of a single dominating corporation that maintains a monopoly on public amenities, citizens must pay towering taxes and fines just to carry out their most private and basic of needs. Out of the mass of the pitiable, a hero rises to lead his fellow citizens in a revolt against the tyrannical regime.

Drawing from West Side Story, Chicago, and Les Misérables among others, the show irreverently pays witty homage to the great American musical theatre tradition. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.
