While the title of the show may raise some eyebrows, this satirical comedy also raises questions!
With music/lyrics by Mark Hollman and book/lyrics by Greg Kotis, the original Broadway production opened in September 2001.

A new fee hike, instituted by the corrupt Urine Good Company, triggers a revolt by the poor. This leads to a head-to-head battle between these two opposing forces – will good triumph over evil?
