Broadway has never seen anything quite like Avenue Q. Most of its characters are puppets, but this is not a children's show. It is a mischievous and often raunchy look at the challenges young adults face as they try to make their way in the big city.
Avenue Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York 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. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Avenue Q took Broadway by storm and won three 2004 Tony Awards, for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical (Jeff Whitty), and Best Original Score (Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx). It went on to successful productions all over the world.
"Sesame Street for Grown-ups, with filthy-minded puppets who teach useful lessons like 'The Internet Is for Porn.' Somewhere Big Bird is molting." Entertainment Weekley
