Paisley Day completes Urinetown cast

Published 10 January 2014

Simon Paisley Day is the final cast member to be announced for Jamie Lloyd’s forthcoming production of Urinetown The Musical, which begins previews at the St James Theatre next month.

The stage and screen actor, whose debut play Raving opened at the Hampstead Theatre last year, joins a previously announced cast that includes Richard Fleeshman, Jenna Russell, Jonathan Slinger and Marc Elliott.

Well known for his work on the London stage, where he has appeared most recently in The Low Road at the Royal Court and The Taming Of The Shrew at Shakespeare’s Globe, Paisley Day will take on the role of Caldwell B Cladwell, the business tycoon whose fortune has been made through the monopolisation of a city’s public toilets. On screen, Paisley Day has appeared in television series including BBC’s Sherlock,Being Human and TV mini-series Titanic.

Set in a town where spending a penny can cost you a one-way ticket to Urinetown, the tale of greed, corruption and revolution, which plays from 22 February to 3 May, features music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann with a book and lyrics by Greg Kotis.

Featuring songs including It’s A Privilege To Pee, Snuff That Girl, Run, Freedom, Run! and I See A River, Urinetown The Musical will open at the Victoria venue following another London premiere, Stephen Sondheim’s musical revue Putting It Together, which plays from 14 January to 1 February.
