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! Join us for the laugh-out-loud racy hit next May at BPA!
AVENUE Q is a gut-bustingly hilarious modern musical focusing on a group of unique 20-somethings making their way in the big city, seeking their purpose in life. Although the show addresses 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.
Charming and touching might not be the first words to come to mind for a musical with song titles such as Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist and The Internet Is for Porn, and with graphic depictions of puppet sex, but Avenue Q turns its raunchy, parodic premise into a musical with real heart.
May be inappropriate for 12 years of age and under:
Adults love AVENUE Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. We'll try to clear that up. AVENUE Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because AVENUE Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for "explicit content." It's hard to say what exact age is right to see AVENUE Q - parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this - if you DO bring your teenagers to AVENUE Q, they'll think you're really cool.
