Performances begin November 4 for Avenue Q at New Jersey's Axelrod Performing Arts Center. The puppet musical kicks off the regional theatre's 2022-23 season with performances scheduled through November 20.
The Tony-winning show follows Princeton, a college grad who has recently moved to an apartment on
Sesame Street Avenue Q in New York City, who discovers the neighborhood is very different than expected. With his neighbors Kate, Lucy, Rod, Trekkie, Gary Coleman, and more, Princeton and the residents of Avenue Q struggle together to find jobs, dates, and purpose.
Starring are Clint Hromsco as Princeton/Rod, Miranda Wolf as Kate Monster/Lucy the Slut, Adam Zeph as Trekkie Monster/Nicky, Beau Bradshaw as Brian, Né Lasheé as Gary Coleman, and Amelia Fei as Christmas Eve. Rounding out the ensemble are Francesca Saccomagno, Luke Pearlberg, and Justin Sudderth.
Directed and choreographed by Todd LaBron Underwood, the production features the original cast of puppets designed by Rick Lyon, music direction by Michael Gilch, scenic design by Fred Sorrentino, lighting design by Chris D’Angelo, sound design by Ian Wehrle, costume design by Fred Mayo, and prop design by Susan Bloir. Larry Copeland and Terrence Berry serve as stage managers.
Due to humor intended for mature audiences, Avenue Q is not recommended for audiences under 14 years of age. Jeff Whitty penned the Tony-winning book for the musical, which features music and lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez who took home the Tony for Best Original Score.
