Avenue Q News & Notes


April 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10  |  2016


The Show:

A puppet-filled comedy follows a group of 20-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life.

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.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children’s show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
