“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” – Vancitybuzz
“One of the best productions in Firehall history. It’s a pisser” – The Province
WINNER – TWO Jessie Awards (Best Large Theatre Production & Best Direction, 2006)
One of our most popular shows returns with an all-new production. A Broadway smash hit with a politically incorrect title, this laugh-out-loud comedy pokes fun of everything in its path. In a dystopian, drought-filled future, a large corporation has a monopoly on all toilets and people must pay for the privilege to pee. Hero Bobby Strong steps in to fight for people’s right to pee in this hilarious send-up of corporate greed, ecological disaster, and musical comedy. So irreverent, so fresh, so original and so funny that – you gotta go!
Directed by Donna Spencer with music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis.
Featuring David Adams, Michelle Bardach, Chris Cochrane, Andrew Cohen, Meghan Gardiner, Katey Hoffman, Patrick Keating, Chris Lam, Anton Lipovetsky, David Marr, Matt Palmer, Rosie Simon, Shane Snow, Tracey Power, Donna Spencer & Andrew Wheeler.
