Join the irreverent denizens of Avenue Q – part flesh, part plushy, people, puppets and all
fun. Hilarious, charming and a little profane, Avenue Q will turn your expectation of
acceptable discourse on its head. Follow our hero Princeton, fresh out of college, to his
shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q which, it soon becomes clear, is
not your ordinary neighborhood. Laugh out loud, funny, toe-tappingly singable and full of
warmth and humor, Avenue Q won the Tony for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
The cast of Avenue Q includes Jimmy Hogan (he/him/his, Princeton); Brandy Miller
(she/her/hers, Kate Monster); Adam Ross Brody (he/him/his, Rod); Andres J. DeLeon
(he/him/his, Nicky/Trekkie Monster/Bad Idea Bear); Melissa Crabtree (she/her/hers, Lucy/Mrs.Thistletwat/ Bad Idea Bear); Thomas E. Squires (he/him/his, Brian) and Mai
