Avenue Q in Broadway AVENUE Q
OB Playhouse & Theatre Company
8/24-9/30/2018
Winner of the 2004 Tony® Award for best musical, Avenue Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a small bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q, where the residents are raunchy, sweet, real, thoughtful, and outrageously entertaining. Avenue Q has been labeled as a Sesame Street like show.....for adults. While there are endearing puppets, THIS SHOW IS NOT FOR CHILDREN, but for mature audiences due to adult themes and strong language. This urban fairytale features a Tony® Award-winning score with songs such as "If You Were Gay", "The Internet is for Porn", "There's a Fine, Fine Line", and "My Girlfriend, Who Lives in Canada". The show comes to life with actors masterfully manipulating rod controlled live hand puppets.
