Urinetown at the St. James Theatre

Description

In a city of the future that's been afflicted by a terrible drought, business tycoon Caldwell B. Cladwell has made his fortune through bribery and the monopolization of all public toilets. 

With a brutal police force maintaining law and order, it's not a place to get caught short. Risk it and you'll be sent to a place no one returns  from - the infamous Urinetown. 

An earnest tale of greed, love, revolution and pay toilets, this hilarious, touching and offbeat show is the winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics' Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards. Its score is one of 21st century musical theatre's finest.

From beginnings on the New York fringe, Urinetown went on to enjoy two hit years on Broadway. With ace director Jamie Lloyd at the helm of this new production, its London run should be similarly flushed with success.
