Scene Editor Jennifer Savage in the 10/23 Arcata Eye:

"I'm typically a believer that one's bodily functions should be--with the exception of illness or impairment--kept to oneself. I don't need to hear pee and poop stories, thank you very much. But when the word "Urinetown" crossed my inbox, I almost danced with joy. I've been waiting years to see this play, which received rave reviews in The New York Times and The New Yorker and many other prestigious publications. It's a perfect story for Arcata, as anyone who has ever needed a public toilet in A-town can attest."

From "Don't Hold It! Just Go--It's Urinetown" by Melinda Spencer in the 10/24 HSU Lumberjack:

"The upbeat, cheery music of the show is in the typical style of most musical theatre classics such as "Wicked" or "Hairspray," but don't be fooled by the candy-coated exterior, this is no typical Broadway musical."

See also Pee For Free and End Up in Urinetown by Ron Thunman in the Eureka Times-Standard magazine, Northern Lights, and URINETOWN in Town in the Eureka Reporter, both 10/25. Also a photo and note in the Calendar section of the North Coast Journal.
