He is welcomed to the street by a cast of fuzzy characters, including the porn obsessed Trekkie Monster; closeted homosexual republican Rod and his roommate Nicky and girl-next-door Kate Monster. As Princeton begins to get his life on track, he succumbs to temptation from Lucy the Slut which puts his relationship with Kate Monster, and the rest of the street, on the line.
Avenue Q originally opened on Broadway in 2003, where it went on to win the 2004 Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. Featuring music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx along with book by Jeff Whitty, the original London production was produced by Cameron Mackintosh and opened at the Noel Coward Theatre in 2006.
Sell a Door's previous shows include 'Dracula', 'A Taste of Honey', 'Seussical' and 'Spring Awakening'.
