Description

Avenue Q is Broadway’s smash-hit 2004 Tony Award® winner for best musical, best score and best book. A hilarious show full of heart and hummable tunes, Avenue Q is about trying to make it in NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account.  Called “one of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see” by Entertainment Weekly, Avenue Q features a cast of people and puppets who tell the story in a smart, risque and downright entertaining way. The New Yorker calls it “Subversive and uproarious.”
