Photo Coverage: The Backstreet Boys Visit AVENUE Q
Avenue Q got a surprise visit from boyband superstars The Backstreet Boys at yesterday's performance. BroadwayWorld was there as the band hung out backstage with the cast. Check out the photos below!
AVENUE Q, the winner of three 2004 Tony Awards including Best Musical - will conclude its celebrated 15+ year run in New York on April 28, 2019.
Powered by its Tony for Best Musical and additional Tonys for Best Music and Lyrics to Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, and Best Book of a Musical to Jeff Whitty, Avenue Q's victory at the 2004 Tony Awards was considered an historic upset and effectively redrew the landscape for innovation, originality and success on Broadway. The musical recouped its investment in just 10 months, and with its fresh and funny tale about people and puppets just out of college looking for their purpose in life, Avenue Q has been groundbreaking in its appeal to young theatergoers who relate to the characters and the challenges they face learning adult life lessons about racism, coming out, unemployment, dating and sex. The show has indeed captivated audiences of all generations with it singular, hilarious take on the traditional story of boy-meets-girl, boy-loses girl, boy tries to win girl back - except in Avenue Q, the boy and girl just happen to be puppets.
