Avenue Q on Broadway - Closing Date - Show Summary - Photos
Avenue Q Show Summary Avenue Q began life at Off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre and very quickly became a smash with critics and the youthful city-dwellers who could relate to the hilarious musical's take on becoming an adult and finding your purpose in post-collegiate life. The show gained fans of all ages and backgrounds when it transferred uptown to the John Golden Theatre on Broadway in the summer of 2003, where it earned more enthusiastic reviews. Avenue Q topped off its honors with a slew of Tonys, including Best Score, Best Book, and Best Musical. Now it is back Off-Broadway, delighing audiences at New World Stages.

The combo of human actors and puppets may make Avenue Q look like a kids' show, but songs like "The Internet is for Porn" and "If You Were Gay" point to a more adult sensibility. Clever jokes about everything from racism to the challenge of finding your purpose make this modern musical comedy a particular favorite of twenty and thirtysomethings. But just about anybody who has made the transition to adulthood (and, preferably, has also seen Sesame Street) can relate to the people and puppets of Avenue Q.
