Avenue Q New York is two-act musical by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, based on a Jeff Whitty's book. It's a coming-of-age parable that looks at the issues, worries, and concerns of young people entering adulthood. They discover how limited their options seem in the big wide world where they're no more ""special"" than the next man or woman. One of the standout features of the musical is its innovative use of puppetry, with unconcealed puppeteers along with real-life actors on stage for maximum entertainment effect.
The musical was originally a TV show and was adapted for the stage in 2002. Opening off-Broadway in spring 2003, the musical moved to Broadway in the summer of 2003. At this point, the Avenue Q musical has won three Tony Awards, including 'Best Musical', 'Best Book of a Musical' and 'Best Musical Score'.
With over 2,500 performances, buying Avenue Q Boadway tickets is a great chance to see the musical that ranks 24th on Broadway's list of longest running shows. In 2009, the musical closed on Broadway, moving off-Broadway in the autumn of that year where it continues to be a great hit with audiences and critics. The New York Times hailed it ""savvy, sassy and eminently likable"" while The New Yorker drew a parallel with Sesame Street. The musical also featured in the 2010 ""best-of"" end of the decade list for Entertainment Weekly.
Avenue Q in New York plays at the New World Stages, which is off-Broadway. This venue is a performing arts hub between 8th and 9th Avenues, just off of Times Square.
