Urinetown Poster

Urinetown

Until June 9, 2019

The parody to end all parodies, Mark Hollman's Urinetown cleaned up during its Broadway run's award season in 2004, winning three Tonys, three Outer Critics Circle, two Lucillle Lortel and two Obie Awards. The self-conscious satire left no stone unturned in its razor-sharp lampooning of capitalism, bureaucracy, municipal politics and the law, taking things even further by sticking its tongue out at Broadway blockbusters musicals by mimicking the likes of Threepenny Opera and Les Mis. Don't miss ACT Theatre's 5th Avenue revival of the outrageous musical during their brand new 2019 season.

Also known simply as "The 5th", this large-scale theater plays host to the biggest Broadway touring shows, as well as staging their own top productions through their very own 5th Avenue Musical Theatre Company, which employs over 600. Some of these shows go onto Broadway afterwards. Opened in 1926, the interior of the building has a distinct Chinese influence; Norwegian architect Gustav Liljestrom took inspiration from various Beijing landmarks from his travels to the region, and incorporated these into the overall design.
