Avenue Q: The Musical
Avenue Q is the best show of the year! Just when you’re wheezing with laughter from the hummable, hilarious tunes, you’re blindsided by a beautifully sincere love song. There’s no handy way to describe ‘AVENUE Q,’ except as one of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see.” Entertainment Weekly
“A thoroughly infectious musical that qualifies as a serious blessing.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Rekindles your faith in the American musical.” Peter Marks, The Washington Post
Avenue Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice. There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fianceé Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod — a Republican investment banker who seems to have some sort of secret; an Internet addict called Trekkie Monster; and a very cute kindergarten teaching assistant named Kate. And would you believe the building’s superintendent is Gary Coleman?!? (Yes, that Gary Coleman.) Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
