Part flesh, part felt, and all heart, this laugh-out-loud, not-so-politically-correct musical tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed puppet just out of college.  Princeton’s got big dreams, but a tiny bank account, so the only place he can afford is an outer-outer borough apartment on Avenue Q.  The apartment is shabby, the commute is terrible, and Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) is the superintendent, but at least the neighbors seem nice!  Together, they search for work, for love, and for their ever elusive purpose in life, finding a bit of enlightenment along the way.
