Avenue Q on Wed 20th November 2013
Wednesday 20 - Saturday 30 November
Winner of the TonyŽ ?Triple Crown? Award for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AvenueQ is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.
Avenue Q is a colourful musical journey where both puppets and people tell the story of Princeton a newly college Grad who is anxious to discover his purpose in life. He must find an apartment and a job, but with no experience and an English degree (?What do you do with a BA in English?) he begins at Avenue A but finds an apartment on Avenue Q more affordable.
Meeting his neighbors for the first time, including Kate Monster, a kindergarten teaching assistant; Rod, an anal-retentive Republican banker; Trekkie Monster, a surly recluse who?s surfs the Internet all day in search of porn and Gary Coleman, the building superintendant, arguments ensue over whose life sucks the most. (?It Sucks to Be Me?).Princeton then finds a lucky penny and so begins his search for is purpose in life. (?Purpose?).
This musical is ?Sesame Street? meets ?South Park? for grownups, with its broad minded puppets reminding us that 'Everyone's a Little Bit Racist' and ?The Internet is for Porn?. Somewhere in the world Big Bird is molting in horror and Cartman is grinning with glee!
Avenue Q is a laugh out loud, must see season. Don?t let the words ?I wish I had seen it ? pass your lips
