Reviews from the popular press for the St James production: “a subversive delight ” (Londontheatre.co.uk); “darkly entertaining and exceptionally sharp show” (Daily Telegraph); “It’s impossible to deny the originality of this crowd-pleaser” (The Evening Standard).
“Urinetown The Musical tells the tale of a town fit to burst; spending a penny can prove problematic in a place where the privilege to pee has become a punishable offence. There is no such thing as rent free relief until our young hero, Bobby Strong, appears – With more than a good set of pipes – and starts a revolution!”
