Jamie Lloyd's UK premiere production proves a formulaic but 'stunningly well performed' spectacle
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In a city of the future that has been inflicted with a terrible drought, business tycoon Caldwell B. Cladwell has made his fortune through bribery and the monopolisation of all public toilets. With a brutal police force maintaining law and order, it's not a place to get caught short! Risk it and you will be sent off to a place no one returns from - the infamous Urinetown. The city needs a revolution and every revolution needs a hero... however unlikely. An epic tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution set in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. Starring Richard Fleeshman and Jenna Russell.
This hilarious satirical comedy finally hits London after its Tony Award-winning Broadway success.
