Avenue Q | The GEM Theater | SEP 29 to OCT 23
Part flesh, part felt and packed with heart,
Avenue Q is the laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q.
Still, the neighbors seem nice. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet entrepreneur), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends! Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Who is AVENUE Q appropriate for?
Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. We'll try to clear that up.
Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn.
It's hard to say what exact age is right to see Avenue Q - 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.
