Hit West End musical tours in Bath
PUBLISHED: 15:16 21 January 2011
THE Tony Award-winning musical comedy, Avenue Q, opens its first ever UK tour in Bath, after nearly five years of mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness in the West End.
In collaboration with Cameron Mackintosh, Theatre Royal Bath Productions is taking Avenue Q on tour across the UK starting at the Theatre Royal Bath from February 2-12.
Hilarious and uproariously entertaining with songs performed by a cast of hugely talented performers and puppets, Avenue Q is a musical like no other.
The show has enjoyed enormous success, both on Broadway and in London, proving to be the perfect, contemporary musical.
Witty, rude and extremely funny, Avenue Q ingeniously combines a cast of humans and puppets who tackle subjects such as dating, racism, being gay and finding your purpose in life.
The story follows Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate new to the area, as he desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his ever-elusive purpose in life.
A tiny bank balance, the distraction of a busty blonde, and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours lead Princeton on a story of self-discovery.
Avenue Q is a musical about the lively and off-the-wall characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues: love, work, relationships, and, above all, just how are you supposed to pay the bills with a BA in English?
Tickets, priced £15-35.50, are available from the box office on 01225 448844 or visit www.theatreroyal.org.uk
