A funny, furry show that somehow combines Sesame Street/Muppet-like puppets with the humor of The Simpsons and Seinfeld. Welcome to the clever, daring world of Avenue Q where (adult) characters discuss real life issues like politics, sex, and racism. All who enter beware: the show warns "Full puppet nudity, not suitable for children." For several years Avenue Q has tickled Broadway audiences with its puckish wit and sly humor. You’ll be charmed by this wildly entertaining award winning Broadway show that is now touring the United States.
With musical numbers like “The Internet Is For Porn”, “It Sucks To Be Me”, and “Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist”, this risqué musical addresses very adult issues. The characters live on Avenue Q, and like human friends, they discuss their lives and eventually solve their problems - but in a very musical manner. Human actors and puppets interact in a style similar to that of a children’s television show. Presenting pop-culture references and the humorous yet complicated problems of real life make this show original, wildly funny and an absolute must see.
Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx have created a brilliant send-up on adulthood in the new century. Directed by Jason Moore (Steel Magnolias), the Broadway production has earned Tony awards for Best Musical and Best Score - some accomplishment for a bunch of puppets. What started out as small Off-Broadway show getting laughs from theatre’s In Crowd has turned into The show to see. Who will be your favorite: Trekkie Monster, Lucy the Slut, or the real actor Gary Coleman? Buy Avenue Q tickets today and experience the excitement of an Avenue Q show live!
