Don’t miss this satirical comedy that won Tony awards for its book and score. A thoughtful look at human rights, environmentalism, and the excesses of unfettered capitalism powered by incredible music and riotous jokes.

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 that 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.

Urinetown is a satirical musical that not only won Tony awards for its book and score but also features incredible music that perfectly complements its comedic themes. The music is a unique blend of genres, from Broadway, jazz, gospel, to rock, creating an atmosphere of irreverent humor and satirical commentary on society. The show’s score, composed by Mark Hollmann and directed by Derrick Lacasse (MAC’s A Broadway Christmas, Freaky Friday), is full of riotous and catchy tunes that brilliantly convey the absurdity and dark humor of the story. The opening number, “Too Much Exposition,” is a witty and ironic commentary on the traditional exposition-heavy openings of musicals, while the rousing “Run, Freedom, Run!” is a joyous anthem of rebellion that is both inspiring and hilarious.

Some catchy quotes from the show!

  • “We all gotta go sometime. At least this way, I get to go in style.” – Bobby Strong
  • “It’s a privilege to pee, but it’s the god-given right to pee that we’re fighting for.” – Little Sally
  • “I’m sorry, Officer Lockstock, but I don’t follow your logic. If people don’t have the money to pay for a pee, then how can they be expected to pay the fine for not paying for the pee?” – Hope Cladwell
  • “There’s a lot of good in this world, Mr. Strong. But you can’t find much of it in Urinetown.” – Officer Lockstock
  • “The truth is, nobody’s innocent. We’ve all got a dirty little secret, don’t we?” – Penelope Pennywise
  • “Oh, no! I’ve seen this musical before. This is where the poor rise up and overthrow the evil corporations!” – Officer Barrel
  • “One day, when the air is free of the smell of urine, when the world is free of oppression, when good triumphs over evil, and when I can pee wherever I want… that’s when I’ll take a break.” – Hot Blades Harry
  • “I’m not the monster they say I am. I’m just ahead of the curve.” – Caldwell B. Cladwell
  • “Freedom is just a metaphor, like the air we breathe. And the pee we’re about to be denied.” – Josephine “Ma” Strong
  • “You can’t stop the revolution, Mr. Cladwell. You can only hope to contain it… or market it, and sell it back to the people in a slightly safer form.” – Bobby Strong
