Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is an irreverent and hilarious musical that 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. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, love and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Filled with gut-busting laugh-out-loud 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 and is loosely based on a popular children's show (a place where puppets are friends, monsters are good, and life lessons are learned), this show features adult themes, offensive language and an onstage portrayal of puppet sex. It is not appropriate for children under 16 years of age.

Avenue Q has not been authorized or approved by the Jim Henson Company or Sesame Workshop, which have no responsibility for its content.

There will be a champagne and dessert reception between 7:00-7:30pm for subscribers and members attending the November 11 performance.
