Avenue Q is the story of Princeton, a recent college graduate (who just happens to be a puppet) and his search for his life’s great purpose. Since Princeton was an English major, he struggles to find work, and ends up renting an apartment on Avenue Q; the only neighborhood he can afford. There he meets some of the most interesting people, and puppets, and monsters that a struggling young person could ever encounter.  Together they explore topics like the true meaning of a mix-tape, what the internet is really for, racism, and what to do when life seems too overwhelming and hard. Avenue Q received the Tony Award for Best Musical when it opened on Broadway and is an audience favorite around the world
