That's right theatre fans. Avenue Q lives. The show which was scheduled to conclude it's six year run this past Sunday will now continue Off-Broadway at the New World Stages. Performances will begin October 9. The surprising announcement was made following the 7pm performance on September 13. Here is a statement from producer Kevin McCollum."Research indicates that this transfer is unprecedented, marking the first time that a Broadway musical has, indeed, moved to an Off-Broadway theatre.Avenue Q is about all of us, so why should it close? People arrive in New York every day hoping to make their dreams come true, so as long as they're here, we're here! It's just one of the funniest, wittiest and wisest musicals ever written and the more you see it, the more you love it."
I for one think it is a brilliant idea. The show still has a large fan base. Plus because the show is now Off-Broadway running cost's will be lower which should ensure a longer longevity for the show. That's good news all around as far as I'm concerned. Long live Avenue Q.
