” Don’t stress! Relax! Let life roll off your backs! Except for death and paying taxes, everything in life is only for now! “
A racy mix between South Park and Sesame Street, part flesh, part felt and packed with heart, AVENUE Q won the TONY “TRIPLE CROWN” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book and is still the funniest show in New York City! This laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton who arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on AVENUE Q where he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the pervert), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx .
“The show remains both fresh and timely—I know plenty of twentysomethings who are
at least as much trouble getting work as did their older brothers and sisters—and its
digs at political correctness are, if anything, even more pointed today.”
