Urinetown is a musical that features themes of greed, corruption, and revolution. A 20-year drought has led to the banning of private toilets. There are public facilities available, but a greedy conglomerate charges a fee for them. If they don't pay, or they use other means to relieve themselves, they are severly punished.
One person, however, decides to stand up and fight the power. Will he be a hero?
Greg Kotis and Mark Hollman created Urinetown, which Sandy Richens Cohrs directed for As Yet Unnamed Theater Company.
More information on the show can be found at the Kentucky Center website.
