SAVANNAH — “Avenue Q” is the smash-hit Broadway musical about real life in New York City, as told by a cast of people and puppets through a hilariously irreverent, Tony Award -winning book and score.

Tickets, starting at $32, will go on sale today at the Johnny Mercer Theatre box office, online at www.savannahcivic.com or charged by phone at (912) 651-6556. Discounts are available for subscribers and groups of 20 or more by calling (912) 651-6557.

“Avenue Q” tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone’s looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship and a “purpose.”
Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that “the real world” isn’t so bad, after all.
The New York Times hailed “Avenue Q” as “a breakthrough musical of a very different stripe. Savvy, sassy and delicious!” and Entertainment Weekly claimed it was “one of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see!”
“Avenue Q” features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty, based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx; and is directed by Jason Moore; puppet design by Rick Lyon, musical supervision by Stephen Oremus, choreography by Ken Roberson, scenic design by Anna Louizos, costume design by Mirena Rada, lighting design by Howell Binkley, and sound design by Acme Sound Partners.
