Urinetown: The Musical

October 20 - October 29

Edison Theatre

6445 Forsyth Blvd.

Music & Lyrics by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis.
Book by Greg Kotis

Directed by Jeffery Matthews

October 20, 21, 27 & 28 at 8 pm
October 22 & 29 at 2 pm

Winner of three Tony awards in 2002, Urinetown has been described as the “anti-musical.” Brechtian in spirit and dystopian in setting, the show is wildly funny and engaging. Bruce Weber of The New York Times wrote ten days after the 9/11 attacks that ”Urinetown…is simply the most gripping and galvanizing theater experience…equal parts visceral entertainment jolt and lingering provocation. The context of the historical moment makes us ask ourselves going in: Can we laugh and thrill to a musical at a time like this?” In 2017 others may be asking a similar question. We are confident that revisiting Urinetown will be just the ticket.
