Description

Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx

Book by Jeff Whitty

Based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx

Directed by Spiro Veloudos

Music Direction by Catherine Stornetta

Choreography by Ilyse Robbins  

Part flesh (humans), part felt (puppets), and packed with heart (universal), Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that 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. There, he meets the girl next door, a Republican, an internet sexpert, and Gary Coleman (need we say more?), along with other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life. Warning: contains adult language and puppet nudity. Not for the kiddies, but your teenagers will think you’re cool if you take them!  

Winner of the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.  

This show contains strong language, adult themes and partial puppet nudity.
