The human actors use puppets like those on public television, to tell the coming-of-age parable of Princeton, a recent college grad who moves into a shabby New York City apartment on Avenue Q. There, he meets a host of colorful types who help him discover his purpose in life, including Kate (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet “sexpert”), Lucy the Slut, the Bad Idea Bears, and more. (You get the picture).
Winner of the Tony® Award “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is produced by the same creative team that brought you the critically acclaimed and incredibly successful musicals Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog and Spring Awakening: Eric Ankrim (Director), Jake Groshong (Executive Director), and Shawn Belyea (Artistic Director).
