Winner of three Tony Awards,

three Outer Critics Circle Awards,

two Lucille Lortel Awards and

two Obie Awards, Urinetown is

an hilarious musical satire of the

legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.


This unique and compassionate new play

asks how do we address life’s biggest

questions when words fail us.
In the overwhelming quiet of the woods,

six runaways from city life embark on a

silent retreat. As these strangers confront

internal demons both profound and absurd,

their vows of silence collide with the

achingly human need to connect.
