CAP 21 presents Urinetown, featuring music & lyrics by Mark Hollmann, with book & lyrics by Greg Kotis.
What is Urinetown? The question runs through this Tony Award-winning musical, which manages to be self-deprecating and terrifyingly relevant at the same time. The musical takes place in a future in which water supplies have so dried up that it is truly a "Privilege to Pee," and all bathrooms are controlled by a large, heartless corporation. The show draws its artistic inspiration from sources as varied as Bertolt Brecht and South Park, melding them into one of the most original musicals of the last decade.
