Avenue Q

Book by Jeff Whitty

Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx

Directed by Kevin Thibault


The Players closes our 114th Season with the 2004 Tony Award winning (Best Musical, Best Book, Best Original Score) Avenue Q. Think ‘Sesame Street meets South Park,’ but funnier and with lots of puppets. This laugh-out-loud musical 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. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, love, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
