This grown-up musical comedy stars a cast of humans and puppets, and tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he 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. There 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.

The Wall Street Journal

"The show remains both fresh and timely—I know plenty of twentysomethings who are having 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. I enjoyed it every bit as much as when I first saw it on Broadway six years ago. So will you." Full Review

The New York Times

"They may have no legs of their own, but darned if those fuzzy creatures aren’t still standing, long after more full-bodied competition has bitten the dust...And they remain surprisingly fresh (in all senses of the word), even for someone who, like me, has now spent many hours in their company." Full Review

Variety

"Of all the musicals hatched in the post-2000 age of irony, this cheeky satire of children’s television shows like “Sesame Street” has arguably remained the freshest and funniest. Returning to its Off Broadway origins, the 2004 Tony winner shows no discernible signs of downsizing and no loss of heart." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"The real staying power of this uproarious show is demonstrated by how well it holds up year after year. I was lucky enough to see the show with the original Broadway cast, and now, seeing it again a decade later, I’m impressed by how well-written, funny, and relevant 'Avenue Q' still is…If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Avenue Q yet, you’re in for a treat. Aside from the debauchery, 'Avenue Q' actually has a lot of heart." Full Review

Hot Pepper Theater

"Avenue Q is like Sesame Street for adults, it's great. Did you see it when it was on Broadway? No? That's okay, because this holds up. It's not too late, you should check it out." Full Review

Theatermania

"The Tony Award-winning musical Avenue Q remains as sharp and funny at its new Off-Broadway home...Indeed, the show's clever score and book continue to delight, and director Jason Moore's production still sparkles." Full Review

Theatre is Easy

"'Avenue Q' still makes me chuckle to the point of tears just as it did six years ago...It’s brilliant. Presenting this very adult story as an homage to children’s entertainment not only drives home the point that we all have to grow up at some point, but also provides unique storytelling opportunities. Although 'Avenue Q' is a well-oiled machine at this point, the cast is still having fun, the direction is tighter than ever and the music is still remarkably good." Full Review

Backstage

"The concept of puppets (operated by actors in full view of the audience) having romantic problems and bills to pay just like people not made of felt still raises guffaws. The new cast doesn't have quite the same degree of polish as the original, but..."Avenue Q" is still one of the hippest theatrical destinations in New York." Full Review

See it if Appropriately inappropriate adult humor with talented cast. Ambitiously makes fun of majority of the labels out there but with heart
