The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. They soon discover that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and their new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive

purpose in life.

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 &

life lessons are learned.

"This is real life! 'Really?? But over half of the characters are puppets, many of whom are clearly spoofs of beloved Sesame Street characters.' Yet, unlike that famous children’s program, Avenue Q is bluntly laden with hard subjects such as racism, homosexuality, temptation, co-dependency, and loss. Despite the tough subject matter and characters built of foam and fur, this show thrives on heart and humanity! Sesame Street will teach our toddlers about numbers and colors, but Avenue Q teaches young adults about the need for equality, mental health, responsibility, and safe use of the internet. Seriously! This is REAL life!"
