Urinetown Auditions

URINETOWN
Lyrics and Music by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis

Book by Greg Kotis

Produced by Todd R. Bennington

Directed/Choreographed by Genevieve Estanislau

Musically Directed by Anthony “Coop” Competello

Stage Managed by Robert Langer



In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. 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. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!
