Avenue Q

by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx Book by Jeff Whitty

23rd June to 2nd July 2016



Avenue Q, the triple Tony award winning musical, 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 neighbourhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbours seem nice. There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée 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. 

From the creative minds that penned the music for Frozen and The Book of Mormon comes a comedy musical like no other. A parody of Sesame Street, but very definitely for adults, the mixture of puppet and human characters will take you on a journey exploring many subjects of modern life, with much music and laughter along the way!
