Avenue Q Turns 15

Avenue QHas it really been fifteen years since one of my favorite show's first opened? Man time sure does fly doesn't it? Avenue Q, which first premiered Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in July 2003, before heading to Broadway, is still playing to packed houses eight times a week at New World Stages.

The show, which won the 2004 Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year, is by far one of the funniest shows that you will ever see. In fact, it was the first Broadway show my parent's ever saw, and they still talk about it some thirteen years later.

Still not convinced? Well for those of you out there who are still on the fence, here is a brief synopsis of Avenue Q from the show's official website. Enjoy!

Avenue Q is the "hilarious and internationally-acclaimed musical about a group of 20-somethings — people and puppets alike — who move to New York with big dreams and tiny bank accounts. Together they live as neighbors on a street in New York as they try to discover their purpose in life."

The musical's characters include Princeton, Kate Monster, Trekkie Monster, Lucy, Nicky, Rod, Gary Coleman, Brian and Christmas Eve. The score includes "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," "If You Were Gay," "The More You Ruv Someone" and "Schadenfreude."

Now as I mentioned, the show is celebrating it's fifteenth anniversary. Not only that, but in honor of this "Special Occasion" they are pulling out all the stops. Starting tonight thru July 29, the show will feature past cast members of the show including original stars and Tony Award nominees Stephanie D'Abruzzo and John Tartaglia, as well as Jennifer Barnhart and Rick Lyon.

Let me guess. You all want to see it now don't you? Well good news theatre fans. You have come to the right place. Plus if you call now, you can get tickets to this award winning musical at prices that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru November 18 it is for select seats only, and like always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Avenue Q at New World Stages. Until next time theatre fans.
