Commentaires longs: Transfert dans le West End de la version créée au St James Theatre.
Presse : "The blunt truth is, though, that it’s not just the title that’s poorly conceived. The show suffers from a strange condition of only getting interesting right at the end...forgettable froth" Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph

"I have, however, one crucial cavil: slick as Urinetown undoubtedly is, just as with the Book of Mormon I felt no emotional connection to the material. That’s a big problem for a big-ticket show." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
