Avenue Q

28th September - 3rd October 2015

Life may suck on Avenue Q but being jobless, homeless, politically incorrect, having sex (whether hetero, homo or porno... and that’s just the puppets) are just some of the topics featured in the terrific songs of this show.

 

Avenue Q, a down market street in downtown New York is home to some off the wall characters performed by humans and puppets.  Princeton, who has just moved to the neighbourhood, desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his purpose in life.  With no money and a busty blond to distract him he’s lead on a hilarious journey of self discovery and makes loads of friends on the way.

 

This uproariously entertaining show will have you laughing out loud all night, so come and meet the all characters including Brian the out of work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good hearted slacker and his room mate Rod, a republican investment banker who has a secret and an internet porn addict, Trekkie Monster and a very cute kindergarten teaching assistant called Kate.

 

Avenue Q was winner of the 2004 Tony Award for Best New Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.  Created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez.
