Avenue Q - Music & Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, Book by Jeff Whitty
Based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx

Humans and puppets share the stage in this hilarious tale of young adults learning to live and love in New York City. This Tony Award-winning Broadway musical has often been compared to a grown-up version of Sesame Street, featuring plenty of adult humor and hit songs such as “Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist” and “It Sucks To Be Me”.  Don’t miss the first production of this gut-busting comedy to be done by a Northwest Arkansas theatre company!
