Urinetown: The Musical

While traveling through Paris in the mid-‘90s, the financially strapped young playwright, Greg Kotis, was forced to contend with the constant cost-benefit conundrum of the City of Light’s pay-for-use toilets. Upon returning to the US, he joined up with composer Mark Hollman to transform this minor but harrowing experience into an uproariously comic dystopian musical set in a world where lack of water forces the poor to work ceaselessly simply for the right to use the restroom.

As it moved from the New York International Fringe Festival to Broadway, Urinetown: The Musical picked up three Tonys with its story of the lowly janitor, Bobby Strong, and his revolt against tycoon Caldwell B. Cladwell and his tyrannical monopoly Urine Good Company. Catchy songs such as “It’s a Privilege to Pee” and “Run, Freedom, Run!” lovingly send up musical tropes, and winking narration demolishes the fourth wall, requiring post-show construction crews each night of its run.
