Toronto: Toronto Musical Concerts presents “Urinetown (The Musical)” in concert October 25-26
Tuesday, September 10, 2019
In a Gotham-like city, a 20-year drought causes a terrible water shortage, leading 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.
Tony Award-winning Urinetown: The Musical is an irreverently witty and humorous satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and the genre of musical theatre itself.
