URINETOWN The Musical

October 15 @ 8:00 pm November 19 @ 11:00 pm

Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollman

Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis

Directed by Rovin Jay

Assistant Directed and Choreographed by Sonya L. Randall

Musical Direction by Stephen Olear

Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of capitalism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, and musical theatre itself! In a large 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! This irreverently humorous “comedic romp” reinvigorates the very notion of what a musical could be, with wickedly modern wit and sustained unbridled laughter!
