Winner of the TONY “TRIPLE CROWN” for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named PRINCETON who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets KATE (the girl next door), ROD (the Republican), TREKKIE (the internet sexpert), LUCY THE SLUT (need we say more?), and other colorful types who help PRINCETON finally discover his purpose in life!

Avenue Q Review Round-Up
Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended
"...In NightBlue Performing Arts Company's production, director David Walters and a talented cast execute the musical's technical challenges with surprising aplomb. But they push the cute quotient too far, hammering home the comedy rather than letting it speak for itself."

Centerstage - Somewhat Recommended
"... The script pops with energy, ribaldry and puppet profanity, and Kate Garassino (Christmas Eve) shines as she sings “The More You Ruv Someone” (at my showing, the audience erupted), yet overall NightBlue’s production seems somewhat muted. Adam Fane juggles the characters of Rod and Princeton with aplomb, but never truly commits to either. Many of the actors simply hold back, specifically David Robbins who plays an unconvincing Gary Coleman and Alex Heika (Brian) who keeps his character one-dimensional. For the puppeteers, I’ll blame the puppets. Maybe a few degrees of emotion get filtered out through the extra layer of felt. That being said, I enjoyed Casi Maggio’s sympathetic Kate Monster and Jason Richards Smith’s hilarious Trekkie Monster."
