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 ad dresses 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. $20 Adults / $10 Students / Season / Flex
***Due to adult themes, language, a mature subject matter, “Avenue Q” is not intended for children.

Fifty-seven year old Ben is recently widowed, childless, and retired. He’s adrift-and even though he’s never seen the ocean, he decides he should build a boat and sail across the Atlantic, single-handedly.

When Ben decides to let Jaime make a movie about his boat-building project, the two men--generations apart and lonely in very different ways--force each other to confront the isolation in their own lives. $13 Adults / $8 Students / Flex
