With maybe the most awful title ever in musical theater history, this funny, innovative, big-hearted musical will leave you cheering and humming the tunes. In an attempt to regulate water consumption, Urinetown (a mythical, bad place) has outlawed the use of private toilets. The citizenry must use public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company, a heartless corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell.

Nominated for 10 Tony awards, Urinetown won Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Musical Score, and Best Direction of a Musical.

DEETS: Irving Arts Center, Dupree Theater, 3333 MacArthur Blvd., Irving. 972-252-ARTS. Thursday–Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets online here.
