WFU Theatre closes with ‘Urinetown’

Wake Forest University Theatre will end its 2023-24 season with the musical “Urinetown,” by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis. The play, directed by theatre professor Cindy Gendrich, opens on the Tedford Stage in Scales Fine Arts Center on Saturday, April 6.

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage and 20-year drought have led to a ban on private toilets and the domination of malevolent Urine Good Company. The poor revolt, led by brave young Bobby Strong, fighting tooth and nail for the freedom to pee “wherever you like, whenever you like, for as long as you like.” Urinetown is a wickedly funny, fast-paced, surprisingly intelligent musical satire, and the winner of multiple Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel, Outer Critics’ Circle, and Tony Awards.
