A Tony Award Winning Musical by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis
Directed by Meg DeBoard
Musical Direction by Kyrsten Hafso-Koppman
Choreography by Siri Hafso
March 26-28, April 2-4, 2020
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! Featuring comedic songs, "It's a Privilege to Pee," "Run, Freedom, Run!" and many more. Urine for a good time!
