“Rousing and infectious.” – Variety

“A sharp satire of the musical form… Every line in the book and lyrics screams ''comedy".” – Boston Globe

“You must immediately see Urinetown The Musical…” – Talkin’ Broadway

“’Urinetown’ packs tremendous fun.” – Time Out

“A goofy good time…keeps the audience chortling.” – LA Times
The success of URINETOWN seems as unlikely as the show's title. The musical debuted at the New York International Fringe Festival where it was an instant hit with audiences. Word of mouth spread quickly and the show was picked up for an Off-Broadway run which took place at the American Theatre for Actors from May 6, 2001, to June 25, 2001. The reviews were wildly enthusiastic and the show then transferred to Broadway at The Henry Miller Theatre, running 25 previews and 965 performances from September 20, 2001, through January 18, 2004.
