The title may be cheesy, but there’s plenty that’s memorable about the content of this politically astute musical, too.

After opening in a small New York theater in 2001, “Urinetown” soon became such a hit that it was snapped up by Broadway producers and booked into the Henry Miller Theatre there. After its Sept. 13 opening night was postponed until the 20th due to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, this people-power musical went on to scoop three Tonys in 2002 — for Best Director, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical — and maintain its hit Broadway run until 2004.
