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 he's had enough, and
plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom.
Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social
irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics
and musical theatre itself. This play has won 3 Tony Awards, 3 Outer Critic's Circle
Awards, 2 Lucille Lortel Awards, and 2 Obie Awards.
