Avenue Q – Allen Theater Playhouse Square

Recipient of the prestigious Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, “Avenue Q” is a whimsical blend of human and puppetry that brims with heartfelt charm.

As he acquaints himself with the seemingly friendly residents, it becomes evident that this neighborhood is far from ordinary. Together with his newfound companions, Princeton embarks on a journey to secure employment, romantic prospects, and, most importantly, their elusive life purposes. Infused with side-splitting humor and an irresistibly catchy score, “Avenue Q” stands out as a one-of-a-kind production that has swiftly won the hearts of audiences far and wide. Caution: The show delves into mature themes through poly-foam puppetry! Directed by Russ Borski, with musical direction by Maria DiDonato. NOTE: NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN (PG-13 content).
