Broadway's 2004 Tony Award winner for Best Musical continues its hilarious, puppet-filled run Off-Broadway at New World Stages. More…
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 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
"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
"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
"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
"'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
"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
"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 It’s perfect for all ages, highly entertaining and different from any show you’ll ever see. It makes you aware of so many things .
Don't see it if You don’t like clever, meaningful songs and/or hand puppets
See it if You want to see puppets with humans on stage in an amusing musical. Was on Broadway snd now off Broadway, after 15 years still great
Don't see it if If you don’t like puppets interacting with humans and each other
See it if It’s Sesame Street for adults...deliciously ironic. Fantastic score and simply a show that puts a smile on your face. One of my favorites!
Don't see it if You hate puppets. Or if you don’t like silly fun.
See it if You aren’t easily offended and if you want to experience and really fun piece of theatre. It is hysterically inappropriate!
Don't see it if You are uncomfortable hearing about bigotry, sex and being gay.
See it if you're looking for the most relatable show off broadway that'll make you cry laughing the entire time at an affordable price.
Don't see it if you get offended easily from jokes about racism, sexuality, and gender.
See it if you loved Book of Mormon or The Producers. Also, if you've never seen a musical before, this is a great one to be introduced to.
Don't see it if you prefer you musicals on a big scale. Found it hard to think of why you shouldn't see this.
See it if You like puppets, are confused about your life, or miss the good old days when Sesame Street could explain everything to you.
Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with tongue in cheek, satirical, raunchy humor involving sex, porn, racism, homelessness, homosexuality, and more.
See it if you enjoy comedy, musicals, irony, adult humor, and relatable characters. The show is like South Park, but with more heart. And puppets.
Don't see it if you're easily offended. The show takes an irreverent tone about many topical issues, including sex, race, politics, and sexual orientation.
