WARNING: Puppet sex

Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is a hilarious spoof on children’s television… but for adults. This laugh-out-loud musical follows recently graduated and currently cash-poor Princeton on his journey to find his ever-elusive purpose. All the way out on Avenue Q, he finds not only a home but a circle of friends who are all searching for something missing.

Three human characters spend their days with eleven puppet characters. The puppets are animated and voiced by actors who are present onstage, in full view of the audience, but remain “invisible” to the other characters. This unique theatrical experience is sure to delight every adult who spend afternoons watching public television… who now agonizes over decidedly adult concerns.

WARNING: Contains adult humor and situations. While the show features puppets, it is not recommended for children.
RUN TIME: Approximately 2 1/2 hours
