The cast of Avenue Q

Avenue Q kicks off the season

September 7-23, 2018

Red Curtain Foundation presents "Avenue Q," the groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical that's been called Sesame Street for adults. Because there are puppets.

Part flesh, part felt and packed with heart, this laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet entrepreneur), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

This show contains adult content and language. Not recommended for children under 12, but mature teens will probably love it.

Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., for the three-weekend run September 7-23.

Tony Award-winning musical

Avenue Q was a surprise hit at the 2004 Tony Awards, winning awards for Best Book, Best Score, and--the big one--Best Musical.

The toe-tapping songs include "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," "It Sucks to Be Me" and "What Do You Do With a B.A. in English?"

And here's the disclaimer: "Avenue Q has not been authorized or approved by the Jim Henson Company or Sesame Workshop, which have no responsibility for its content."
