A warm fuzzy feeling is on its way for Eastbourne this summer as Tony Award-winning musical, Avenue Q, brings a whole host of felt friends to the Congress Theatre, Tuesday 5 – Saturday 9 July.
Featuring the naughtiest puppets in town, brought hilariously to life by an ensemble cast of 11 performers, Avenue Q is a heart-felt tongue-in-cheek musical about growing up, dreaming big, and finding your purpose in life.
Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Soon discovering that the only neighbourhood in his price range is Avenue Q, he finds himself moving in with some truly quirky characters.
Princeton, star of Avenue Q said: “Avenue Q is a pretty downbeat street in a very crummy part of New York, so we’re all super excited to be escaping that rat-infested hellhole and sampling the delights of England! Being on tour, it’s really fun to see all the amazing things England has to offer. Countryside, sheep, fish and chips, tea, rail replacement bus services… and now we’re about to arrive in glorious Eastbourne! We can’t wait to check out the sunshine coast and take a walk up to Beachy Head. Here’s hoping we don’t get caught in any gusty winds.”
Featuring hysterically funny songs Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart.
Co-created by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Robert Lopez, who also co-created The Book of Mormon Robert also co-wrote the songs for Disney’s Frozen who has worked on TV shows Scrubs, The Simpsons and Southpark.
