Synopsis: AVENUE Q THE MUSICAL

Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the story of Princeton, a recent college grad who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There he meets Kate Monster (the girl next door), Rod (the button-down Republican), Trekkie Monster (the internet sexpert), Lucy the Slut (need we say more?), and other colorful characters (some human, and some of the talking friendly furry monster variety) who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life.

The Drama Group is excited to be presenting the Chicago Southland Premiere of this much talked about, ground breaking and award winning musical. The NY Times called Avenue Q “Sweetly Satiric and Surprisingly Fresh” while Variety said of the show “Of all the musicals hatched in the post-2000 age of irony, Avenue Q has remained the Freshest and Funniest.” In addition to a six year Broadway run and national touring success, Avenue Q won Tony Awards for: Best Musical, Best Book and Best Original Score.

While adults love Avenue Q, they may seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it’s appropriate for kids. Avenue Q can be great for teens because it’s about real life, but it may not be appropriate for young children because it does address issues like sex, drinking and porn on the web. It’s hard to say what exact age is right to see Avenue Q, parents should use discretion based on the maturity level of their children.

“Come see what all the fuzz is about”
