Transferring from London’s St James Theatre, Urinetown arrives at the Apollo Theatre in one of the most anticipated West End transfers in years.
Set in a dystopian universe in which people are charged a fee to pee, Urinetown is a satirical play that comments on the process of privatising human rights.
The musical by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis focuses on the CEO of the Urine Good Company, Cadwell B, who enforce a strict pay to pee policy, and the revolutionaries of Public Amenity#9. In a world where those who fail to pay the going rate and wind up defecating the streets, strict punishments are in place. Such a sin could see those illegally reliving themselves wind up getting arrested and sent off to “Urinetown,” a place from which prisoners never return…
Among the those who believe in their right to pee is Cadwell’s daughter, Hope, an unlikely revolutionary. However when the rebels discover Hope’s true identity, will they be able to accept her, despite being the spawn of the man they hate?!
