Welcome to Urinetown. Not the place of course, the musical. Urinetown the place is sort of a mythical place, a bad place – let’s just say it’s full of symbolism and things like that.
It’s a privilege to pee: water’s worth its weight in gold these days
No more bathrooms like in olden days, you come here and pay a fee.
In a city of the future afflicted by a terrible drought, public amenity tycoon Caldwell B. Cladwell has made his fortune by bribery, monopolization, and the implementation of a brutal police force maintaining the laws against private toilets and public urination. Bolstered by the love of a woman, Bobby Strong will stand up and say enough is enough! But things may be more complicated than he thinks – the woman he loves is none other than the daughter of the very tycoon he is trying to overthrow.
No anger or badness, just laughter and gladness, if only you follow your heart!
