Don’t get caught up in the title! Urinetown is actually a Tony Award-winning musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself. The eight showings will be at the Plano Children’s Theatre.
Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.
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!
