Avenue Q

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.

With 3 humans and 11 puppets who interact, Avenue Q is a coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the issues and anxieties assoicated with entering adulthook.  Princeton, a recent college graduate, is anxious to discover his purpose in life; but first, he must find an apartment and a job, with no work experience and an English degree. Beginning his search on Avenue A he finally finds an aggordable apartment on Avenue Q.  His rent may be cheap but the neighborhood is rich in characters.  Kate Monster, a kindergarten teaching assistant; Rod, an anal-retentive Republican banker; Nicky, Rod's slacker roommate; Brian, an aspiring comedian; Christmas Eve, Brian's Japanese fiancee and a therapist with no clients; Trekkie Monster, a surly recluse who surfs the Internet, and Gary Coleman, the building superintendent.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.

This show contains Adult situations and is NOT for children.
