Avenue Q to hit the Road

Avenue Q is going on a National Tour! The tour will start in August and is booked until July of '08. So Avenue Q maybe traveling to a city near you ...

Avenue Q is a Broadway musical, which was originally conceived by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez. It opened off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in March 2003 (where it won that season's Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical), and it has been on Broadway at the John Golden Theatre since July 31, 2003. It has risqué songs about racism, Internet porn, and the difficulties of life, yet all but three characters are portrayed by puppets. It surprisingly won the 2004 Tony Award for Best Musical as well as Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Book of a Musical, defeating the much bigger-scale, front-runner musical of the season, Wicked.

Also of Note that they are Auditioning for the tour: The roles of Princeton/ Rod,
Nicky/Trekkie Monster/Bad Idea Bear, Kate Monster/ Lucy T. Slut, Mrs. T / Bad Idea Bear/ Ensemble, Christmas Eve, Brian & Gary Coleman are auditioning in NYC on January 26, 27 & 28. For more details check out the listing:

Although I've not yet seen Avenue Q it is a favorite soundtrack to listen to, and my most recent CD acquisition (my husband surprised me for Christmas)
