Winner of the triple crown for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book at the 2004 Tony Awards, Avenue Q is an irreverently witty and outright uproarious insight into a world where Sesame Street-esque puppets rub shoulders with humans.
This is a puppet show, however make no mistake, this is not your average kids puppet show. Join us as we follow the life of Princeton, a bright eyed college graduate navigating his way through the multicultural, and at times raucous neighborhood Avenue Q in New York City.
Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the pervert), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Directed by Peter J Snee, Avenue Q features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Frozen) and Jeff Marx, and book by Jeff Whitty, and includes songs like It Sucks to Be Me, Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist, The Internet Is For Porn and If You Were Gay, just to name a few…
Be prepared to be transported into a world of puppet debauchery, where puppets and humans mingle with gregarious consequences. From sexual congress, failed childhood stardom and excessive drinking to finding your purpose in life, Avenue Q hilariously navigates adult life from a puppet’s point of view – no strings attached!
