SYNOPSIS:
Winner of the Tony Award “TRIPLE CROWN” for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST  BOOK, AVENUE Q  is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart.  AVENUE Qis a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet sexpert), Lucy the Slut (need we say more?), and other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life!  AVENUE Qis sure to offend and delight everyone and is rated “WTF” for colorful language and full puppet nudity!
