Avenue Q takes The Circuit Playhouse stage
By Lisa Lynch
This Tony Award-winning musical, with crass but charming puppets, is the hilarious and heartfelt story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York with big dreams and little money. He can only afford to live on Avenue Q, but at least his neighbors turn out to be…colorful. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life. The New York Times calls Avenue Q “savvy, sassy, and eminently likeable.”
Avenue Q is directed by Jordan Nichols and features Associate Company Members Ben Laxton, Kelsey Hopkins, Nick Mason (How to Succeed), Andrea Rouch (Footloose, How to Succeed), Sarah Hoch, Patrick Mullen, Jr., and Kyle Blair, with guest artist Maya Naff and Resident Company Member Claire Kolheim (Ragtime) as “Gary Coleman.”
Avenue Q runs at The Circuit Playhouse October 7 – 30, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. The Pay-What-You-Can performance is Thursday, October 13. The Circuit Playhouse is located at 51 S. Cooper St. in Midtown. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656.
