Urinetown

Dates: April 6-May 26, 2019
Run Time: Two hours with one intermission
Location: The Falls Theatre

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself.

Set in a fictional future where a terrible 20-year drought has crippled the city’s water supplies, the citizens must now use the public pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company. Citizens who try to circumvent the peeing-fee by relieving themselves in the bushes risk being taken away to “Urinetown,” a mysterious place where many have been sent but no one ever returns. With fee increases in the pipeline, the poor rise up to fight the tyrannical to make the public amenities free for all to use. Urinetown is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution.

“A declaration of the power of theatre!”
—The New York Times

Urinetown is the great-grandchild of Brecht’s Threepenny Opera. The plot couldn’t be more relevant to the times we are living in; the gap between the one percent and the other 99 has grown so wide, and greed has become so rampant, that even basic biological functions have been monetized. This is a self-referential, irreverent, hilarious, meta-musical about revolution.”
—John Langs
