Urinetown the Musical

2hr. 20min. (1 intermission)


Bet you never thought you'd see this on Broadway! Imagine a town where it's no longer free to pee. Now imagine that's the subject of a new musical. The show is set in a Gotham-like city overwrought by ecological disaster. The water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets, and the privilege to pee is regulated by a single, malevolent corporation, which profits by charging admission for one of mankind's most basic needs. Urinetown was a hit during 1999's New York International Fringe Festival, and is now a presence on the Great White Way. Charles Shaughnessy, who played distinguished Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield on TV's The Nanny, stars as toilet magnate Caldwell B. Cladwell . A limited number of $25 rush tickets are available at the box office 3 hours prior to each performance. Tickets are located in the last row of the orchestra, and limited to 2 per person. May be appropriate for children 10 and older. Children under 4 are not permitted into the theatre.
