After nearly five years of mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness, London’s funniest show is coming to our region.
The Tony Award-winning Avenue Q is the irresistibly charming musical about the lovable hopeless 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?
Life may suck on Avenue Q but being jobless, homeless and politically incorrect are just some of the topics featured in the songs of this show.
Billed as an adult version of Seasame Street, Avenue Q tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone’s looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship, and a “purpose.”
Avenue Q runs at the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield, from March 28 to April 2. Tickets range from £17 to £31 and can be booked by calling (0114) 249 6000 or online at www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk.
