THE UK’s naughtiest puppets head to Essex this March. Comedy musical Avenue Q returns in 2019 to tour the Towngate Theatre, Basildon for the very first time, from Monday 11 – Saturday 16 March.
Following five years in the West End, sell-out runs worldwide and smash hit tours in 2014, 2015 and 2016 (packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness!) the irresistible Tony Award-winning Musical Created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, Co-creator of Book of Mormon and writer of the songs for Disney’s Frozen, is a charming tale of the loveable characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster, Lucy the Slut (the name says it all!) and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.
Featuring hysterically funny songs including The Internet Is For Porn and Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist, Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart.
