The Statesman Journal says: “If you have the urge for an amusing and unique theatrical experience rife with intelligent satire and potty humor, “Urinetown” is for you.” And, “Geri Sanders’ choreography is stellar.”
What the heck kind of musical IS THIS ?!?
Urinetown: The Musical is a hilarious, biting satire — a rousing, energetic show about a group of townspeople facing bladder-busting consequences after a major drought limits pee-portunities.
Urinetown is satirical look at power, capitalism, bureaucracy, populism and politics — and the musical as a theatrical form — when a 20-year drought causes a terrible water shortage, making private toilets unthinkable. A completely original, highly entertaining and unconventional show, with music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and book by Kotis. Urinetown won the Tony Award for Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical in 2003.
