Long-running Broadway musical Avenue Q returns to Melbourne this August, but for a strictly limited season.
For 12 days only, Peter J Snee’s puppet show will play at Her Majesty’s Theatre, taking the audience into a world where puppets (that look like Sesame Street characters) rub shoulders with humans.
Following the life of Princeton, a fresh college graduate who is navigating his way through a multicultural Avenue Q in New York City, you’ll find yourself bopping along to songs such as What Do You Do With a B.A. in English/It Sucks to be Me, Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist and The Internet Is for Porn. It’s adult life from a puppet’s perspective, with a storyline including sexual congress, failed childhood stardom and plenty of excess drinking.
The witty, unruly and though-provoking musical has won multiple awards, including a Tony Triple Crown for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
Note: despite it starring puppets, it’s certainly not for kids.
Avenue Q will run from August 3 to August 14, 2016, at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Tickets are on sale now.
