Urinetown: The Musical

Multiple award-winner including Tony Awards for Best Book and Score, Urinetown is an irreverent musical satire with Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollman, Lyrics and Book by Greg Kotis and directed by Pirooz Aghssa with musical direction by Howard Cass.

"We have a right to pee for free!" When a 20-year drought causes an epic water shortage, private toilets are banned and public toilets cost money per use. If anyone refuses to uphold the laws, they are sent to the mysterious "Urinetown," never to return. This sharp musical comedy not only comments on the environment, the legal system and corporate mismanagement, but also the form of the Broadway musical. A hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution, that is sure to have audiences up out of their seats – and not just to run to the lavatory.

Urinetown: The Musical, will play in the Quirk Theatre on February 15, 16, 22, 23 at 7pm, February 21 at 10pm and February 17 & 24 at 2pm.

Recommended for audiences ages 10+.
