This puppet-filled witty and raunchy musical comedy follows a group of twenty-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life. Recent college grad Princeton moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q – a street where puppets and humans alike live together. Princeton and his new-found friends struggle with issues of love, sex and sexuality, unemployment, and identity. Winner of the 2003 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
Leave the kids and the easily offended at home for this one!
