Opening nights are always wild, but watch out for the wacky, post-show antics at Broadway's first opening of the season, the weird and er, wet Urinetown, taking its first offical bows in a kick line Sept. 20.

The satiric Urinetown is set in a futuristic urban world where residents must "pay to pee" due to a drought that has plagued the land. When townspeople revolt against the evil corporation that controls the water, what burbles up in the tuner is a neo-Brechtian spoof of musical comedy conventions. Urinetown, which stars John Cullum, Hunter Foster, Spencer Kayden, Jennifer Laura Thompson and Jeff McCarthy, opened Sept. 20 at The Henry Miller after a one-week delay caused by the Sept. 11 World Trade Center tragedy.
