PREVIEW: AVENUE Q at the Theatre Royal, Brighton – June 4-9

ONE of the West End’s biggest hits of recent years, the Tony Award-winning musical comedy AVENUE Q, returns to Theatre Royal, Brighton, on Monday (June 4)

Said to be hilarious and uproariously entertaining, with songs performed by a cast of hugely-talented performers and puppets, AVENUE Q is a musical like no other.

Full of mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness, AVENUE Q is the perfect, contemporary musical.

The show, which runs until Saturday (June 9) has enjoyed enormous success with audiences on Broadway, the West End and throughout its UK tour.

AVENUE Q is a musical about the lively and off-the-wall characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues: love, work, relationships, and, above all, just how are you supposed to pay the bills with a BA in English?

The story follows Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate new to the area, as he desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his ever-elusive purpose in life. A tiny bank balance, the distraction of a busty blonde, and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours lead Princeton on a story of self-discovery.

AVENUE Q is the result of a collaboration between Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, who began writing the show in 1999, originally thinking the idea would make a great TV series. Three years later it opened off-Broadway, and following rave reviews, it transferred to Broadway.

In 2004, the show won three Tony Awards for Best New Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
