Celebrate Valentine's Day in style this year -- just like AVENUE Q's Rod (photo attached) -- and bring your sweetheart to AVENUE Q at New World Stages (340 West 50 Street) in Manhattan. AVENUE Q plays 2 performances on Valentines Day (Sunday, February 14th) at 3:00pm and 7:30pm.
AVENUE Q - the hilarious and enormously popular musical about a group of 20-something people and puppets fresh out of college who move to New York City with big dreams and tiny bank accounts - has music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty, and is directed by Jason Moore. Based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, with puppets conceived and designed by Rick Lyon, AVENUE Q has musical supervision by Stephen Oremus, choreography by Ken Roberson, scenic design by Anna Louizos, costume design by Mirena Rada, lighting design by Howell Binkley, and sound design by Acme Sound Partners. General management is by Ken Davenport, Davenport Theatrical Enterprises.
Sarah Stiles, a veteran of AVENUE Q - who stared as Kate Monster and Lucy on Broadway from November 2007 to November 2008 recently rejoined the AVENUE Q cast, which includes Seth Rettberg, Cullen Titmus, Danielle K. Thomas, Sala Iwamatsu, Nicholas Kohn and Maggie Lakis.
Winner of three 2004 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score (Messrs. Lopez and Marx) and Best Book of a Musical (Mr. Whitty), AVENUE Q became an overnight sensation in July 2003, having transferred to the John Golden Theatre from a wildly successful, extended and sold-out engagement Off-Broadway at The Vineyard Theatre in Union Square. During its six-plus years on Broadway and now at New World Stages, AVENUE Q has played over 2,600 performances in New York City alone.
