The champagne flowed like — well, you don't wanna know.

The cast of Broadway's triple Tony-winner, Urinetown, partied Sept. 19 prior to the Sept. 20 one-year anniversary of its Broadway opening. In 2001, the original opening date for Urinetown was Sept. 13, but following the Sept. 11 tragedy the opening was altered.

The satiric musical comedy about a corrupt corporation that forces residents to "pay to pee" in public facilities during a devastating drought is as unlikely a hit as Broadway has ever seen. It began in the New York International Fringe Festival, was picked up by commercial producers who mounted a test run Off-Broadway, and then moved to the Great White Way, where it won Tonys for Best Score (Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann), Best Book (Greg Kotis) and Best Direction of a Musical (John Rando).

The current cast at the Henry Miller includes John Cullum, Megan Lawrence, Hunter Foster, Jeff McCarthy, Nancy Opel and Jennifer Laura Thompson.

Tickets are $35-$95. The Henry Miller Theatre is located at 124 West 43rd Street. For reservations, call (212) 239-6200.
