Avenue Q - Brisbane Arts Theatre

For every childhood Sesame Street fan now going through a quarter-life crisis.

One thing is for sure: Avenue Q is not your average puppet show. It follows the story of recent college graduate Princeton, who moves to a drab apartment on the colourful street of Avenue Q in New York to follow his dreams. As they say, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

Along the way, Princeton meets girl-next-door Kat,; the neighbourhood Republican named Rod, an internet sexpert called Trekkie, and Lucy, who has a bit of a street corner reputation. They help him along the way, teaching him the ways of the Big Apple, as well as discovering what Princeton was meant to do with his life.

This Tony Award-winning act has circled the globe, and returns to Brisbane Arts Theatre's stage for the fourth time after sell-out shows of the past. While the whole escapade is one big nod to Sesame Street, the target audience is nostalgic, quarter-life-crisis-having adults, and the show is not recommend for children. Hit songs from the soundtrack include 'Everyone's A Little Bit Racist' and 'The Internet Is For Porn'.
