AVENUE Q at TheatreWorks New Milford to Run 9/19-10/18

Recently, filmmaker and master puppeteer, Roberto Ferreira, co-founder of the Puppet School of San Francisco, L.A., and New York, (www.PuppetSchool.com) came to TheatreWorks New Milford to prep the cast on the finer points of puppeteering for the premiere of the Theatre's upcoming hit musical comedy, AVENUE Q. With Book by Jeff Whitty and Music & Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, this puppet-filled production won the coveted 2004 Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.

AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart. The show is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood, considering it's inhabited by both people and puppets. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. PARENTAL ADVISORY: Get a sitter. This is not fur the little ones.

The production features some of the finest actors and puppeteers in the region: Jamison Daniels (Stratford), Patricia McCarthy (Bridgeport), Mike L'Altrella (Oxford), Jasmin Love Barbosa (Brewster, N.Y.), Bo Mi Yim (New York, N.Y.), Carey Van Hollen (Sandy Hook), and Glenn R. Couture (Ansonia).

AVENUE Q is under the direction of Bradford Blake and the musical direction of Charles Smith.
