Here’s their thoughts on the show…

Director Warren McWilliams says:

“Urinetown is unique, you can’t liken it to anything else. It’s just brilliant. With so many modern musicals being lightweight and fluffy it’s great to have something with a bit of substance to it. Its Brechtian tones have the audience questioning who’s right and wrong, and what the results of our actions are but rather cleverly Urinetown manages to do it whilst you sit tapping your feet along to the music in fits of laughter.”

Musical Director, Mike Benyon says:

“Damn you Mr McWilliams. Just as I was planning a spring break from musical direction to concentrate on improving my golf handicap you come along and throw the truly magnificent Urinetown at me. My plans for qualifying for next year’s Open are in tatters and I will have to comfort myself that SMP are producing possibly the best show to hit London’s West End in the last 10 years!”

Choreographer, Jo Bakhurst says:

“I’m so excited to be choreographing Urinetown that I have peed my pants” (She couldn’t afford to pay)
