RUNS DEC 6, 2013 thru JAN 12, 2014

Full of racy puppets and boisterous songs, Avenue Q is a hilarious look at life in New York City, in a world populated by people and puppets. In its Broadway debut, Avenue Q scored the "Triple Crown" of Tony wins, grabbing honors for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. The lovable cast includes characters made of both flesh and felt: recent college grad Princeton, who moves to Avenue Q full of hope for the future, the girl/monster next door (Kate), and a colorful collection of neighbors who help Princeton discover his purpose in life.
