Guess Q’s back! The naughtiest puppets in town will be returning to The New Theatre Cardiff as comedy musical Avenue Q returns with all of your favourite fuzzy friends thru to 22nd June.
Following five years in the West End, sell-out runs worldwide and smash hit tours in 2014, 2015 and 2016 (packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness!) the irresistibly Tony Award winning Musical Created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez,Co-creator of Book of Mormon and writer of the songs for Disney’s Frozen, is an irresistibly charming tale of the loveable characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the
good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster, Lucy the Slut (the name says it all!) and a very cute kindergarten teacher named
Kate Monster. Featuring hysterically funny songs including The Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist, Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart.
Ryan and Jodanna from ‘It’s Showtime’ caught up with cast member Jasmine following its opening night:
Avenue Q first opened Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2003, before transferring to Broadway later that year where it won three Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best
Book. In 2006 it transferred to the West End where it ran for five years before touring the UK. It has appeared in more than ten countries all over the world. Avenue Q is produced by Selladoor Worldwide, producers of Footloose, Little Shop of Horrors, Flashdance – The Musical and Fame – The Musical with Richard Darbourne Limited – Avenue Q is directed and choreographed by Cressida Carré, designed by Richard Evans, Lighting Designed by Charlie Morgan Jones and Sound Designed by Chris Bogg. Puppets are designed by Paul Jomain of Q Puppets with Puppet Coaching by Nigel Plaskitt.
Hilarious, cheeky and uproariously entertaining, with a cast of 11 hugely talented performers and puppets, Avenue Q is the musical like no other.
