It’s a musical like no other. Sure, it might be a little bit rude but it is a hysterically entertaining and heart-warming show that, when it first opened in 2003, took home 3 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Although a long, long way from the upmarket end of New York City, Avenue Q is home to some wonderfully lively and whacky characters who come together to share their lives, their loves and their dreams with us.

Princeton is a bright-eyed college graduate on a voyage of self-discovery, with a tiny bank balance and a BA in English. After moving to the outer-outer borough, he soon gets a real education when he meets a band of new friends: Kate (the single girl next door), Rod (the Republican with a secret), Trekkie (the internet sexpert), Lucy the Slut (need we say more!) and many more curious and colourful folk, both the furry and non-furry kind.

It’s not easy being grown up—unemployment, political correctness, being homeless and intimate relations are just some of the life lessons you’ll be taught in this wonderful coming of age story about what it really means to be an adult. If you’re a child at heart with a good sense of humour, it’s safe to say that Avenue Q is right up your alley!

Avenue Q contains scenes which may be unsuitable for children under 15. Yes, it’s full of puppets but these aren’t the kind you’ll find on Sesame Street! So, parents, if your child isn’t old enough to see a musical that contains drinking, (puppet) sex and plenty of naughty words then it’s time to call the babysitter!

Directed by Darren Sangwell.
Musically Directed by Aaron Powell.
With a stellar cast of people and puppets!
