Reviews are in for Urinetown!

Urinetown: The Musical opened to a standing ovation and has already sold out three shows. Here’s what the critics had to say about the irreverent musical comedy that has been making everyone laugh out loud.


“you’ll just laugh and laugh and laugh…. one of the best productions in Firehall history… Should be Number One on your ‘must see’ list. You just gotta go.” – Jo Ledingham, (of the Vancouver Courier)

“this satire set to music is sharp, funny and maybe even a tiny bit prophetic.Vancouver Presents

“It’s a marvel to see this Broadway-scale musical performed on such a small stage… smart, sassy, and slightly off-kilter… a fine satire on the state of the water wars.” – Vancitybuzz

“Urinetown is fantastic–go see it!” – Beyond YVR

“Urinetown’s memorable songs, impressive dance numbers, and award-winning score will delight musical lovers, while its ironic humor and send-up of musical conventions will appeal to people who may not be fond of the form.” – PRISM Magazine

“I won’t be surprised if it will again win awards in the upcoming Jessies. It was superbly directed by Donna Spencer who also plays Ma Strong; the choreography by Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg was flawless; the set design by Ted Roberts was exceptional;  and Barbara Clayden’s costumes were to the T.” Reviewvancouver.org

a hilarious satirical show that adults love, even though they are eons past their preschool bathroom-humour phase… electrifying… I loved everything about this show but as a dance addict, I have to give top billing to Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg’s stand-out choreography. Triple Wow!” Review From the House

“Urinetown is a satirical gem that pokes fun at politics, climate change, and (in the meta spirit) musical theatre.” – Lotusland Magazine

Urinetown runs til November 29. Click here for more info.
