Enjoy an evening of laugh-out-loud humour
Set in a rough area of New York City, the modern musical Avenue Q had its Off-Broadway premiere in 2003 and has since gone on to become one of the smash hits of the century. Creators Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (who also co-created The Book of Mormon) touched a nerve with their humorous musing on how it feels to be a young adult discovering that life might not, after all, be as magical as you were promised it would be. Playing on the sentiments embodied by popular children's television programmes such as 'Sesame Street', the musical pokes fun at the disappointment of growing up to live a totally ordinary life, but also features a cast of larger-than-life characters and other themes such as racism and pornography. Due to the adult content and the profanity of many of its lyrics, there is an age rating for Avenue Q - this is not one to bring your kids to. Yet adults of any age will fall for the irreverent humour and uncomfortable truths espoused by this ingenious show: it's a riotous performance that will leave your sides aching and probably more than one inappropriate lyric stuck in your head. Tickets to Avenue Q guarantee you a musical experience of a different kind - a unique evening ideally suited for fans of musicals like Urinetown, The Book of Mormon or Spamalot.
The unique cast of creative musical Avenue Q
As well as its cheeky songs (popular numbers include 'What Do You Do With a B.A. in English?' and 'Everyone's a Little Bit Racist'), Avenue Q is famous for its use of puppets. Three human actors mix with seven puppet characters controlled by visible puppeteers in a manner similar to Lion King. From rod to live hands to mechanised puppets, the 'cast' of Avenue Q features bright, felted or furry figures that can put on performances just as emotional and engaging as the real human actors. No explanation is given for why humans and puppets are mixed; it's all just part of the weird Avenue Q world, which is so captivating that the musical has received several prestigious awards and become one of the longest-running shows on Broadway. Winning over legions of new fans with every performance, you can't fail to be captivated by this witty show: a musical with a real difference. So, don't delay, buy or sell your Avenue Q tickets on StubHub now.
