Musical Theatre Southwest invites members to a rehearsal of their upcoming production, Avenue Q, which will be performed at their Center for Theatre, 6320-B Domingo NE, July 8-31 (Fri & Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2:00pm). TLC members get $2 discount. More information and tickets: www.musicaltheatresw.com.
A puppet-filled comedy follows a group of 20-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life.
Winner of the TONY "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart.
The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
ATG's TLC members will talk with the director, William R. Stafford, to discover what it’s like to direct the puppets and their handlers, learn how the performers have been trained to use the puppets, and watch part of a rehearsal.
