Producers of the Tony Award-winning "Best Musical" Avenue Q have announced that the production has added an extra four weeks to its off-Broadway run. It will now play its final performance at New World Stages on May 26, 2019, instead of the previously announced April 28 closing date. Upon closing, the production will have played a total of 6,569 performances since its first Broadway preview on July 14, 2003. Avenue Q features music & lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, with a book by Jeff Whitty, and is directed by Jason Moore.
The New York Theatre Guide last reviewed the New York production of Avenue Q seven years ago, so we thought it was high time we re-visited Princeton, Kate Monster and co. at New World Stages to see if that fur-covered musical magic is still alive and well. I’m happy to report that Avenue Q is still right up my (Sesame) street!
