With the Earth’s water supply tragically diminished, a government ban on private toilets has sprung forth an evil corporate empire that charges admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. The musical satire Urinetown is wildly original, outrageous, and clever. Praised by critics for being one of the freshest shows to hit Broadway, Urinetown was rewarded with nine Tony award nominations, three wins, and millions of fans.
