What is Avenue Q?
Avenue Q is London’s funniest show!
Avenue Q is a street in the outer boroughs of New York City, where the residents are out of work, out of luck, and desperately seeking their purpose in life. 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.
Yes, the characters in the show are all puppets!
Think Sesame Street – but cheeky, naughty, and downright rude at times!
The story in detail:
AVENUE Q 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. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Who is AVENUE Q appropriate for?
AVENUE Q contains scenes which may be unsuitable for children under 12. Children under 5 are not admitted.
It is safe to say that if you are an adult with a good sense of humour, then AVENUE Q is right up your street.
Is it appropriate for kids? Er, well, this is where it gets a bit fuzzy. If your teenager is mature enough to see a musical about issues such as sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn, then they'll probably love AVENUE Q too! Only you can judge. It's hard to say what exact age is right to see AVENUE Q - parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this - if you do bring your teenagers to AVENUE Q - they'll think you're really cool!
AVENUE Q was the winner of the 2004 TONY AWARD® for BEST NEW MUSICAL, BEST BOOK OF A MUSICAL and BEST ORIGINAL SCORE!
