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.

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).

Along with Bradford Blake (director and choreographer) and Richard Pettibone (producer, co-set and co-lighting designer), the show's crew consists of musical director Charles Smith, co-set designerGlenn R. Couture, co-lighting designer Scott Wyshysnki, and stage management by Kathy Bolster with Maya Daleyand Abby Hambidge acting as assistant stage managers.

AVENUE Q made its Broadway debut on July 31, 2003 at the John Golden Theatre and ran for more than six years, making it 23rd on the list of all-time, longest running Broadway shows. The play went on to win the coveted 2004 Tony Award "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.
