Synopsis

Winner of the Tony Award for Best  Musical, Best Score and Best Book, this laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q.  He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood.  Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.  Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children’s show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.

CRITIC’S PICK: “SWEETLY SATIRIC and SURPRISINGLY FRESH!” – The New York Times

CRITIC’S PICK: “‘Avenue Q’ remains a sly and winning piece of metamusical tomfoolery.” – Time Out New York
