New Avenue Q tour starting in January

Avenue Q is to go on a new UK tour opening  at the Kings Theatre Portsmouth on 25 January 2019 before embarking on an extensive tour. Tickets go on sale later this week with further dates and casting to be announced.

Avenue Q is not the most upmarket street in New York: about as far removed from Park Avenue as you can be! But it is the home to some very lively and off the wall characters performed by a clever mix of humans and puppets. Life may suck on Avenue Q but being jobless, homeless, politically incorrect and having all kinds of sex are just some of the topics covered in the show's score.

Princeton is a college graduate who has just moved to this neighbourhood and wants to follow his dreams and discover his purpose in life. The show takes him through this journey with the distraction of a busty blonde and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours.

The Tony Award-winning musical, which is created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, will be  directed and choreographed by Cressida CarrĂ©, designed by Richard Evans, with lighting design by Charlie Morgan Jones and sound design by Chris Bogg.
