2010-11 Season


by Greg Kotis & Mark Hollmann

Don’t let the title scare you, Urinetown is good clean fun!  One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, this three-time-Tony winner is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution.  In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage has led to a government enforced ban on private toilets.  Now its citizens must pay for the privilege to pee! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, this modern satirical masterpiece includes nods to Les Mis, West Side Story, and many more.  With its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter, Urinetown is so much more than its title.
