The Barn Players


Don’t let the title fool you! The award winning musical URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution set in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

It also won the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical for co-creators Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis.
