“Urinetown, The Musical” is an imaginary place where water is so scarce that you have to pay to pee! This Tony Award winning satire pokes fun at capitalism, socialism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement and petty small town politics.

Urinetown, the Musical Preview (Curtain Calls 5.1, May 2009)
The final presentation of the 86th Season at Community Players was the Tony Award winning musical with one of the strangest titles in theater history “Urinetown,The Musical.” It was certainly one of the most unusual musicals to be perform at Players. “Urinetown, The Musical” was another show of the season that would feature sponsors: Mariano V. Tolentino, Jr. M.D., Scott C. Morgan, M.D. and Samuel A. Grampas, M.D. A reception honoring and thanking the doctors followed immediately after the May 2nd performance. The reviewer urged patrons not to be put off by the title of this show. The performers and the quality of production was highly praised. To set the tone for this satire, a special lighted top of the proscenium was a structural arch sign that included the title, and a toilet seat for one of the letters that also would be lighted up as needed.
