Winner of Tony® awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. Imagine a "Rated R" Sesame Street for twenty- and thirty-somethings, including a cast of hilarious puppets.

Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets Kate (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the internet sexpert), Lucy the Slut (need we say more?) and other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life.

Songs include "What Do You Do With a B.A. in English?" "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," "The Internet is for Porn", "Purpose", and many more.

Please note this show is Rated R. Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex and drinking. Parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this—if you do bring your teenagers to Avenue Q, they'll think you're really cool. Music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. Book by Jeff Whitty.

Darnell Morris is over the moon to be spending another summer at ASGT, having directed 2011's Hairspray and 2010's The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which won a 2011 Ruby Griffith Award. Darnell's many directing credits include “Jekyll & Hyde“ and “The Rocky Horror Show” at Kensington Arts Theatre; “Children of Eden” at Greenbelt Arts Center; “Seussical The Musical”, "Disney's Beauty and the Beast", and "The Wizard of Oz" at Musical Theater Center; and "A Year With Frog And Toad", "School House Rock Live", "Willy Wonka", and "Pippin" (2009 Ruby Griffith Award winner) at KAT 2nd Stage where he is Artistic Director.
