Urinetown Musical London

The ripples of revolution are lapping the shores of the West End! URINETOWN, the satirical musical comedy that was a sold out splash hit at the St James Theatre will cascade into London's West End to the beautifully refurbished Apollo Theatre.

Award-winner Jamie Lloyd (Richard III, The Commitments) directs this sharp-witted rampant riot of a show that tells the tale of a town about to burst; spending a penny can prove problematic in a place where the privilege to pee has a preposterous price tag. There is no such thing as rent free relief until our young hero Bobby Strong appears with more than a good set of pipes. 

Sometimes all you need is a drop of a hope to save the world! 

Make sure you catch this truly hilarious and critically acclaimed audience favourite when you're in town!

 

Urinetown News

Full casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Urinetown. The show, which has music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis, transfers to the Apollo Theatre from Monday 29th September following a sell-out run at the St James Theatre.

Simon Paisley Day (Musketeers, Doctor Who, Titanic, Sherlock, Spartacus, Being Human) will be reprising his critically-acclaimed role as the tyrannical Caldwell B. Cladwell, the machiavellian Head of UGC (Urine Good Company) in the West End transfer of Jamie Lloyd’s ground breaking, splash hit production of Urinetown The Musical at the Apollo Theatre.

Returning to the show after its sell out season at The St James Theatre, rising star Matthew Seadon-Young will be taking on a new role, as Bobby Strong, Urinetown’s most unlikely hero, alongside BBC’s The Voice star Nathan Amzi who will be playing the role of Officer Barrel.

Last week’s #WestEndUpdate was dominated by the news of The Scottsboro Boys and Sunny Afternoon’s West End transfers. Over the past few days two more extremely exciting West End transfers have been confirmed!
