The naughtiest puppets in town, from the comedy musical Avenue Q, return next year to tour the UK, opening at Portsmouth Kings Theatre in January.
These foul-mouthed fuzzy friends spent five years in the West End with sell-out runs worldwide, and in the UK, that were packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness.
Now the Tony Award-winning musical, created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (co-creator of Book of Mormon and writer of the songs for Disney’s Frozen), is making a comeback.
Avenue Q is an irresistibly charming tale of the loveable characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate, who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account.
There’s also Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée, Christmas Eve; Nicky, the good-hearted slacker, and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod; an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster, Lucy the Slut (the name says it all) and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.
Featuring hysterically funny songs including The Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist, Sellador Worldwide’s Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm, and very fuzzy, heart.
Avenue Q first opened Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2003, before transferring to Broadway later that year where it won three Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
Hilarious, cheeky and uproariously entertaining, catch it at a theatre near you.
