Winner of the TONY® TRIPLE CROWN for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and all heart.
AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college graduate named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q with big dreams and a small bank balance. There he meets Kate Monster (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie, Lucy, and other colourful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life.
Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it’s appropriate for kids. We’ll try to clear that up. Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it’s about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. 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!
