Urinetown is “a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. 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!”
Terry Teachout of The Washington Post said Urinetown is “A joyously cynical musical about musicals, whose barbed, knowing wit made me laugh so long and hard that my cheeks were sore all the way home.” The Village Voice called the musical, “Sly and funny,” and famed theater critic Rex Reed reported in The New York Observer, “What kind of musical is this? A fresh, unique, original, impudent, colorful, exciting, irreverent, surprising and wonderful musical, that’s all!!”
Production dates are September 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15 at the Studio Theater. For more information or to set up a separate audition time due to any conflicts, contact Julie Wenzlick at 989-723-2084.
