Avenue Q

Avenue Q Tickets

The 2004 Tony Award-winning "Best Musical" Avenue Q enjoyed a lengthy run off-Broadway at Stage 3 inside New World Stages.

Often described as "Sesame Street for adults", the musical comedy lovingly parodizes childrens' television programmes and exposes the truth about what really happens when you leave college and venture out into the real world. With now infamous songs such as "It Sucks to Be Me", "If You Were Gay", "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist", and "The Internet Is for Porn" in its score, Avenue Q is a raucously outrageous treat for young adults and the young at heart, who consider themselves not easily offended.

Our Avenue Q Review

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!
