Avenue Q has been described as "Sesame Street for grown-ups" and was the winner of the Broadway Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book in 2004. Several of the characters in the musical are played by puppets. Zany and adult-themed, this laugh-out-loud musical revolves around a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby apartment building on Avenue Q (described in the script as a 'homey, dilapidated street in an outer-outer borough of New York City). The superintendent of the building turns out to Gary Coleman of TV's 'Different Strokes.' Princeton meets new puppet and human friends in his new apartment and they struggle to find jobs and dates, and help him find his ever-elusive 'purpose' in life. The plot touches on the various contemporary, sensitive topics such as racism, sexual orientation, relationships, and poverty.
In our production, we will be expanding many production numbers (in the style of recent Muppet movies) to incorporate a large ensemble cast including special Around the Clock Café dancers and regular people in the neighborhood.
