Avenue Q show coming to the Warner Theatre
Kevin Lee from YELP in my Everyday Reads has the skinny on the Avenue Q show coming to the Warner Theatre.
The Broadway's smash-hit musical comedy about real life in New York City, Avenue Q, is returning to the District this February for a limited engagement at the Warner Theatre. The cast of people and puppets in this hilariously irreverent, Tony-winning book and score will perform from Tuesday, February 10 - Sunday, February 15. Yelp along to songs like "It Sucks to Be Me," "If You Were Gay," "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist" and "The Internet is for Porn!"
About the show:
AVENUE Q tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone's looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship, and a "purpose." Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that "the real world" isn't so bad, after all!
The New York Times hailed AVENUE Q as "a breakthrough musical of a very different stripe. Savvy, sassy and delicious!" and Entertainment Weekly claimed it was "one of the funniest shows you're ever likely to see!"
