Urinetown, The Musical
music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann
book and lyrics by Greg Kotis

About this clip: Urinal worker Bobby Strong leads an underground revolution of disenfranchised citizens fighting for their right to "pee for free." Along the way, the rebels have captured Hope Cladwell, daughter of UCG's CEO.
