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, Urinetown finally hits London after its Tony Award-winning Broadway success.
Richard Fleeshman, who will play Bobby Strong, starred in Ghost the Musical in the West End and on Broadway. His other stage credits include Legally Blonde. He rose to fame starring in Coronation Street and other TV credits include All the Small Things.
Jenna Russell will play Penelope Pennywise. She was most recently seen on stage in the Menier's production of Merrily We Roll Along. Her other theatre credits include Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods and Guys and Dolls.
Directed by Olivier Award-winner Jamie Lloyd and designed by Soutra Gilmour , Urinetown promises to be THE stand out musical opening in London.
