Just Like Your Life, Only Funnier.
Winner of the TONY® “TRIPLE CROWN” for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, and BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND since first producing it in our 2013 season, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. It is a gut-bustingly hilarious modern musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named PRINCETON who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q, a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Stage Center will produce two versions of the musical to perform in repertory; the original R-rated version, and a new PG version which may appeal to a wider audience.

“Of all the musicals hatched in the post-2000 age of irony, this cheeky satire of children’s television shows like ‘Sesame Street’ has arguably remained the freshest and funniest. [It] shows no discernible signs of downsizing and no loss of heart.” – Variety
