Relaxing into its new Broadway home and its own avowedly dingbat conceit (a faux-agitprop musical about a capitalist police state where citizens pay to urinate), the underground hit’s gallows humor and relentless literalism have taken on an elegiac quality. Grimly appropriate for the times and this town, Urinetown earns the dubious honor of being the perfect pee joke for a post-ideological age.
