We see a river… flowing for freedom!

In a town like you’d see in any musical, the government is being controlled by a billionaire turned civic leader that profits by abolishing private toilets and charging admission to corporate-run bathrooms for one of humanity’s most basic needs: urinating. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Written in 2001 and inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, this musical is an irreverently hilarious satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny.

Urinetown is a hilarious three time Tony Award-winning musical that is sure to bring a smile to your face with its unlikely, (yet undeniably brilliant) combination of musical theatre pizzaz, tongue-in-cheek political satire, and more than just a hint of light-hearted potty humour!


“Urinetown, the Musical” is produced by special arrangement with MTI (Music Theatre International).
