In a fictional “most expensive city in the world”, a “cross-border water crisis” has led to a government ban on private lavatories. The woeful water shortage sees the erection of pay-to-pee public toilets operated by an all-powerful corporation, Urine Good Company, owned by the megalomaniac Caldwell B. Cladwell. Breaking the laws against gratuitous public peeing means urination ruination, with offenders being exiled in the dreaded and mysterious “Urinetown”, never to be seen again.
When threatened with yet another pee-fee hike, the poor citizens, having endured overwhelming oppression and bursting bladders, can no longer hold it in, and stage a revolution, led by a handsome hero with the heroically handsome name of Bobby Strong. And, in true musical theatre style, he still finds the time and energy to fall hopelessly in love with the honeylicious Hope Cladwell, who (shock! horror! spoiler!) turns out to be the daughter of the dastardly Caldwell B. Cladwell!
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, URINETOWN is the hilarious musical satire that gleefully takes the piss out of politicians, populism, “people power”, capitalism, corporate corruption, and musicals themselves!
