999 Brady Avenue Atlanta, GA 30318

When a terrible water shortage leads to a government ban on private toilets, a malevolent company profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs -- until a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution. That's the story of Urinetown: The Musical, a hilarious and satirical tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. The show's tuneful and irreverent score gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill. Urinetown's original Broadway run earned multiple Tony Awards.

"...“Urinetown” won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re totally put off by the title, you should probably think about trusting your instincts. But fans of “The Simpsons” and musical satires such as “The Little Shop of Horrors” will undoubtedly, um, want to go while they still can."

"...This tongue-in-cheek musical doesn’t always take itself seriously (nor other musicals, which get spoofed in places). As the narrator, Officer Lockstock (Bart Hansard) has a meta-narrative that comments on the show itself with Little Sally (Christina Hoff) that guides the audience along through this hilarious and extravagant ride. It is in their conversations where we learn that this unconventional musical isn’t necessarily a happy one."

Atlanta Cultural Arts Reviews - Highly Recommended

"...The cast is superb. Jeff McKerley as Caldwell B. Cladwell, the impeccably attired honcho of UGC is a riot. He’s outraged by the idea that citizens would not want to pay to pee. The two lead cops, Officers Lockstock (Bart Hansard) and Barrel (Ray Hilton) know where their bread is buttered. Senator Fipp (Robert Conner) does just that for anybody willing to pay for his votes. Caroline Freedlund is Hope Caldwell, the innocent daughter of the evil Baron who falls for the leader of the revolution, Bobby Strong (Nick Arapoglou), and their’s is the love which moves mountains, or at least urinals."
