Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is a night of gut-busting humor, a delightfully catchy score and story filled with heart.
The 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, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
What is Avenue Q Like?
Picture a grown-up episode of Sesame Street, with satirical songs (“It Sucks To Be Me”) and jokes replacing preschool-style banter. The actors remain visible at all times and mimic the action of their puppets, adding yet another level of humor. Avenue Q is fast-moving and laugh-packed, particularly for audiences willing to embrace its rebellious, politically incorrect spirit.
Is Avenue Q Good for Kids?
In spite of the presence of Henson-esque puppets, Avenue Q is not a children’s musical. Explicit language is used throughout, one character wrestles with his sexuality and one dirty ditty declares, “The internet is for porn.” Older teenagers will enjoy the show because it tackles issues of growing up and leaving home, but parents should use discretion in deciding whether their kids are mature enough for Avenue Q.
