A terrible water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a ban on private toilets. People must use public amenities, regulated by a single company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Those who can’t afford the fees are ‘exiled’ to a mythic place called Urinetown, never to be seen again. One man must choose between following his heart towards love or a revolution that will lead the people to freedom. The outcome of the revolution is unknown but malevolent corporate greed meets its match in this hilarious, Tony Award-winning satire.
