“Urinetown: The Musical”
Date / Time
February 17, 2024 - February 24, 2024
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! “Urinetown” is a satirical comedy that premiered in 2001 and won three Tony Awards. It satirizes the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement and municipal politics.
By Greg Kotis, music by Mark Hollman and directed by Monty Cole.
