Guess Qs back! The naughtiest puppets in town will be heading to a theatre near you as comedy musical Avenue Q returns next year to tour the UK with all of your favourite fuzzy friends, opening in at Portsmouth Kings Theatre 21 January 2019.
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 Disneys Frozen, is an irresistibly charming tale of the loveable characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of lifes 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 fiance 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 Everyones A Little Bit Racist, Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart.
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.
