The success of URINETOWN seems as unlikely as the show’s title. The show first premiered at the Fringe Festival in 1999. The outrageous story was an instant hit with Fringe audiences. The show was picked up for an Off-Broadway run in 2001. The reviews were wildly enthusiastic, and the show was subsequently transferred to Broadway. It was the first Fringe Festival show to achieve that feat.

URINETOWN is a farcical tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. 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. A hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

URINETOWN was nominated for an impressive 10 Tony Awards. Major awards won include:

  • Tony Award – Best Book of a Musical
  • Tony Award – Best Direction of a Musical
  • Tony Award – Best Original Musical Score
  • Obie Award – Best Choreography
  • Obie Award – Best Book and Lyrics
  • Drama League Award – Best Musical
