Showing now through April 27th
Your last chance to see our Broadway Season Finale!

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage caused by a 20-year draught has led to a government ban on private toilets with no concern for the poor, bladder-oppressed masses. The supposedly evil Mr. Cladwell rules a single monopolistic corporation, UGC (Urine Good Company), which charges the city’s citizens sky-high prices to use public amenities. But young Bobby Strong, a lowly restroom attendant, decides that now is the time for change. He incites a massive uprising against the Cladwell empire, only to fall in love with his daughter, Hope. 


Funny, unusual, and maybe even with something of a message (shudder), Urinetown is a show you shouldn’t miss seeing just because of the name.
Sarasota Magazine
Urinetown will make you laugh. This musical constantly shifts gears, gets you off guard, and throws you curve balls from left field. Don’t be surprised if you’re busting a gut.” 
Sarasota Observer

“[Urinetown’s] cast is strong from leads to ensemble, who all get into the spirit.
