Can't understand how anybody who watches musicals could not love this. Really funny. Everyone in cast up to the job no weak links and such good attention to detail for example the 2 police Lockstock and Barrel and 2 of the cast were smoking but never laboured it was just there to notice. Loved it

Yes it has a terrible title - they know - but this is a work of utter genius and delight. Urinetown is hilarious, joyous and in parts shocking. It lovingly picks apart the cliches of the musical with great songs and a brilliant cast. It's unmissable the best show in the West end bar none. Oh and Sue it's meant to be funny.

This is the worst show i have ever seen & i have seen many. There was no great storyline to keep you interested. All my group found it very dull & boring and a bit confuesd as we had heard good reviews for it. The singing was good and the actors had very good voices, its just a shame about the acting. So very disappointing, as we were looking to seeing this and the tickets weren't exactly cheap.We found nothing to laugh at. Certainly won't be recommending this to anyone. Terrible ending.

The best musical ever about Malthusian economics - great tunes, a superb ensemble cast and lots of laughs.

6 stars really! Don't be put off by the title: it is a wonderful show with great songs/cast and a serious message. Totally uplifting.

This show stinks! And set in the sewers beneath this ever-impressive theatre with it's growing repertoire, Urinetown is the best show you'll see this year. The grim staging with its own Les Mis turntable, used to great comic effect, the strange dank odour and the extraordinary lighting provide the perfect backdrop to a show with great tunes and greater performances. Johnathan Slinger and Karis Jack guide us through the dystopian drama, never letting toilet humour stand (or squat) in the way of happy musical. Watch out for Richard Fleeshman and Rosanna Hyland who are prodigious talents but it's really unfair to single out anyone. Go now before it's too late!
