In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits
by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom. A brilliant satire modeled off the plays of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, with additional nods to the musical theatre canon, Urinetown is a wickedly funny, fast-paced, and surprisingly intelligent comedic romp.
