Enjoy an Exclusive interview with Alex Belfield and Nancy recorded on Broadway:
Alex went to meet Nancy at Urinetown.
So the question everyone is asking is ‘What is Urinetown’? Well it’s not a village in the North, it’s a brand new West End Musical by Greg Kotis.
The original idea for URINETOWN was born after Greg encountered a pay-per-use toilet whilst travelling in Europe. He began writing the award-winning Book shortly after, joining with Mark Hollmann, composer and lyricist. URINETOWN was nominated for 10 Tony awards, winning for best book, score and direction.
