Adult ‘Sesame Street’ heading to Lancashire
Broadway and West End smash-hit Avenue Q The Musical is heading to Lancashire,
Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the story of a recent college graduate named Princetion who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets Kate Monster (the girl next door), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie Monster (the internet sexpert), Lucy the Slut and other colourful types who help Princeton finally discover his true purpose in life!
Avenue Q will be directed by Cressida Carré, who returns to Sell A Door Theatre Company having previously Choreographed Spring Awakening and Seussical. Carré said: “Avenue Q is wacky and fun, appealing to teenagers and adults alike with its musical ‘tongue in cheek’ take on Sesame Street.
“For me it is something a little bit different and the challenge will be not only directing the actors but also the puppets! ”
David Hutchinson, Artistic Director added: “I have every faith that this parable, which so cleverly pokes fun at the issues young people face going into adulthood, will strike a cord with audiences up and down the country.”
