Jim Raposa directs this unique show, filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets
‘Avenue Q’ is a timeless story about young adults searching for their purpose in life and dealing with the uncertainty that faces them. Drawing its inspiration from Sesame Street, many adults in the audience will find direct and recognizable parodies of the popular characters they grew up with. Don’t miss this hilariously funny new breed of musical.
