February 4 - March 26, 2017
presented at Stage 773
In a dystopian near-future, a terrible water shortage has led to a government ban on private toilets. Citizens are required to use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the regular folk, a hero reaches his breaking point and starts a movement to offer the people some much-needed relief! At a time when private companies are controlling more nad more of our daily lives and faith in elected officials is at historic lows, Urinetown challenges both institutions with irreverently humorous satire.
