After a six-year run at Broadway's Golden Theatre, the massively popular, Tony-winning adult puppet musical Avenue Q now calls New World Stages its home. Full of humor and hummable tunes, Avenue Q is a hilarious look at life in New York, featuring a fantastic cast of people and puppets. In its Broadway debut, Avenue Q scored the "Triple Crown" of Tony wins, grabbing honors for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. The lovable cast of characters, both flesh and felt, includes recent college grad Princeton, who moves to Avenue Q full of hope for the future, Kate (the girl/monster next door), and the colorful collection of neighbors who help Princeton discover his true purpose in life.

Following the success of last season’s The Cockail Hour, Theater Breaking Through Barriers presents another comedy by the terrific A.R. Gurney. In The Middle Ages, the focus is on family. Set in one room – the trophy room of a men’s club – from just after World War II through the late 1970’s, the play illustrates the conflict between long-standing traditions and the pressure for change. Son Barney needs to break free, but his father Charles, the president of the men’s club, locks him in the trophy room when he misbehaves. On one such occasion, he meets the shy Eleanor, falls in love, and spends the next 30 years trying to win her over. Meanwhile, her mother, a social climber hungry for stability, strives to break into this rapidly failing world.
