Avenue Q is unlike anything ever seen before on or off-Broadway! With a cast of 11 puppets and three human characters interacting in a Sesame-Street-meets-South-Park style—all wondering why real life is not what the world of children's TV had led them to believe. Profanity-laced and hilarious, this is definitely a show for mature audiences. Parents must use their own discretion when deciding if their children are mature enough to see this show; as the official Avenue Q website says, "If you do bring your teenagers to Avenue Q, they'll think you're really cool."
Winner of three Tony Awards®.

Who is Avenue Q appropriate for? Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. It's great for older teens because it's about real life. It is not appropriate for children and younger teens because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. Parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children.
What is Avenue Q about? Winner of the Tony® "Triple Crown" for Best Musical,
Best Score, and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart. Don't miss out on this chance to see this long-running Broadway hit!
Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud, adult 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, Princeton 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 him finally discover his purpose in life.
