---- ABOUT Avenue Q ----
Avenue Q is not the most expensive of New York streets, but has a certain charm that could easily be missed. This charm is overwhelmingly due to its position as the home of some lively and slightly nutty characters performed by an unholy comedic alliance of puppets and humans.
It’s a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the enduring story of a recent graduate named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He sets out to find his purpose and is soon surprised to discover that his friendly - yet not exactly ordinary - neighbours are also stuck in that same stage of life. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
The show contains songs so catchy it’s ridiculous! With titles like ‘It sucks to be me’, ‘If you were gay’, ‘Everyone’s a little bit racist’ and ‘Schadenfreude’, it’s exactly what you wouldn’t expect from a bunch of adorable puppets. And it makes the show all the more hilarious.
Avenue Q was the winner of the 2004 Tony Award for Best New Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
