Avenue Q

Avenue Q

For those who don’t know about this seemingly cute, family puppet musical, the first thing we’ll say is DON’T BRING YOUR KIDS!

After wowing audiences in Brisbane for the past three years, now it is Mackay's turn for this ridiculously fun show!

When Cameron MacIntosh, the world’s most successful musical producer, announced that Avenue Q would be closing its three-year run at the Noel Coward Theatre in London, there was a stampede at the box office which resulted in the company moving the production to run for yet another year in the West End.  And there’s a very good reason.  Avenue Q is an absolute romping hysterical (and slightly screwed up) delight from beginning to end.

This is a more grown-up version of those loveable Sesame Street muppets who dance, sing, fight and (wait for it) have sex – on stage.  Facing unemployment, relationship problems and addictions, these muppets will make sure you never look at Sesame Street quite the same way again.

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.

Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. We'll try to clear that up. Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life.

It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. It's hard to say what exact age is right to see Avenue Q—parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children.

But we promise you this: if you DO bring your teenagers to Avenue Q, they'll think you're really cool.
