?What kind of musical is this? An original one.? ? The New York Times

?A fresh, unique, original, impudent, colorful, exciting, irreverent, surprising and wonderful musical.? ? New York Observer

Expect the unexpected, because you?ve never experienced anything like Urinetown. This highly original, zany musical is a wild, happy mix of biting satire and loving parody. A terrible water shortage has crippled the sewer system of a Gotham-like town in this wonderfully imaginative, hilarious dark comedy. In a mad attempt to regulate water consumption, the government outlaws the use of private toilets forcing residents to use public, pay-per-use amenities. Anyone refusing to pay for the privilege to pee is immediately and without question hauled off to Urinetown ? a mysterious place where people go but never return.
