Street Theatre Company presents Avenue Q
The puppets make their Nashville debut!
March 23-April 15, 2012Winner of the TONY® “TRIPLE CROWN” for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. AVENUE Q tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account.
The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone's looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship, and a "purpose."
Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that "the real world" isn't so bad, after all!
The New York Times hailed AVENUE Q as "a breakthrough musical of a very different stripe. Savvy, sassy and delicious!" and Entertainment Weekly claimed it was "one of the funniest shows you're ever likely to see!" Due to adult situations (like full-puppet nudity), AVENUE Q may be inappropriate for kids. (Parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this - if you DO bring your teenagers to AVENUE Q, they'll think you're really cool!)
AVENUE Q features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty, based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. AVENUE Q is directed by Martha Wilkinson, musical directed by Rollie Mains, and features Tyson Laemmel, Jennifer Richmond, Daniel Bissell, Hugh Britt, Evelyn Brush, Fiona Soul and Sayaka Mizusawa. AVENUE Q is presented in part thanks to support from Metro Nashville Arts Commission, Tennessee Arts Commission and Graffiti Advertising.
AVENUE Q runs March 23 through April 15 with tickets only $16 for adults and $14 for students and seniors. Seating is reserved by date order of ticket purchase, so don’t wait-buy your tickets today!
