The musical, which is directed by Jamie Lloyd, received its UK premiere at the St James Theatre in March. It will run at the Apollo from 29 September.
Written by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, Urinetown is set in a Gotham-like city of the future, where a hero leads the people in an uprising against private toilets.
Director Lloyd's other current West End productions are The Commitments and the upcoming Richard III, as part of his new season at Trafalgar Studios.
He told WhatsOnStage at the launch of Urinetown: "I saw it on Broadway in 2001 and I loved it - I remember crying with laughter, and being aware of how incredibly pertinent it was. I also loved the atmosphere of the piece, this bleak dystopia, which I think is very original for a musical."

Urinetown will transfer to West End from September. The Broadway musical, which is directed by Jamie Lloyd, received its UK premiere at the St James Theatre in March. It will run at the Apollo from 29th September.
