The musical debuted at the New York International Fringe Festival, was produced off Broadway and then moved to Broadway.
Urinetown is a comedy, featuring satire of the corporate world, sight gags, parodies of musical theater conventions in general, and Les Misérables in particular, and jokes that poke fun at the show itself.
