Avenue Q Tickets
Avenue Q is a unique musical featuring a cast that includes both humans and puppets. The songs deal with many issues that people confront in their daily lives and leave audiences laughing throughout the show.
Avenue Q is in an outer-outer borough of New York where people and puppets are struggling to get by. The residents share their opinions on important issues with Princeton, a recent college graduate with a degree in English who is having trouble finding a job and paying his rent.
The play is reminiscent of Sesame Street, but the topics covered in the songs have adult themes, such as racism, homosexuality, unemployment, and dating. Audience members can identify with the characters who are confronting issues they may be facing in their own lives.
"They may have no legs of their own, but darned if those fuzzy creatures aren’t still standing, long after more full-bodied competition has bitten the dust." – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
"Avenue Q is still one of the hippest theatrical destinations in New York." – David Sheward, Back Stage
The play made its debut off-Broadway in 2003. It was created by the team of Jeff Whitty, Jeff Marx, and Robert Lopez. Avenue Q defied conventions and paved the way for other unconventional musicals, such as The Book of Mormon.
Avenue Q was transferred to the John Golden Theatre on Broadway, where it was performed 2,556 times. After it closed on Broadway, the play reopened off-Broadway at its current home, New World Stages.
Avenue Q is a delightful and irreverent musical with songs about many controversial topics. Even though it stars puppets, the play is nothing like Sesame Street, the children’s program from which it draws much of its inspiration. The show is definitely intended for an adult audience.
