The 2002 Tony Award winning play is about a town that has outlawed the use of private toilets in an attempt to regulate water consumption. The citizenry must use public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company.
Richard Zoglin, of Time Magazine said of the play, "Adventurous and groundbreaking musicals can provoke us, engage us in fresh ways, push the boundaries of the form, make a real emotional connection with the people on state, musicals like 'Urinetown,' the sell-out hit that aims for comic heights and keeps the audience soaring."
