Avenue Q Broadway Show Tickets

Before the musical Avenue Q moved to Broadway at the John Golden Theater, it hit big time at the Off-Broadway theater – the Vineyard Theater, in March 2003. It opened at this Off-Broadway theater to rave reviews, and it was nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical Award in 2003. When it moved to Broadway, it previewed at the Shubert owned John Golden Theater on July 10, 2003. It opened on July 31, 2003, after a total of 22 previews.

This most audacious of all musicals on Broadway opened to rave reviews. It has been accepted by both, the adults and the mature teenagers alike, and has been extended four times. Avenue Q touches the real life issues, such as sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. It has adult oriented content, and has full puppet nudity. It also shows simulated sex between puppets. It is a musical for adults, as it has mature language.

As of December 31, 2006, Avenue Q has performed 1,428 times on the stage of Broadway, and audiences are still clamoring for more. It was nominated for Tony Awards, and out of six nominations, it won three Tony Awards for:

Best Musical
Best Book of a Musical (Jeff Whitty)
Best Original Score (Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx)

The Story
Avenue Q is a story about adult-sized issues, about repressed sexuality, unemployment, racism and depression. This Jason Moore directed and Ken Roberson choreographed musical, based in an imaginary neighborhood, touchingly portrays trivial aspects of everyday life, humorously.

It is a story about Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate with big dreams and a very meager bank account. Avenue Q happens to be the only imaginary New York neighborhood he can afford. It is a story about an out-of-work comedian, and his therapist fiancĂ©e – Brian and Christmas Eve. It is about a good-hearted slacker and his investment banker roommate – Nicky and Rod. It is a story of an Internet addict, Trekkie Monster, and also about a kindergarten assistant – Kate. And to top it all, the building superintendent is Gary Coleman. Remember him? Bet you do!

The Tickets
Tickets for popular shows are never easy to get, and for the show this popular, near impossible – especially from the box office of the theater. Avenue Q Broadway show tickets were never easy to procure, and need to be booked quite in advance. You need to have the patience to stand in the long lines at the box office, and if you are lucky, you may be able to get the tickets of your choice.

Of course, you can try to obtain your Avenue Q Broadway show tickets from dubious sources. Such sources, like the re-sale forums and the sites similar to eBay can be risky. You are never sure that tickets obtained from these sources are not fake.

One sure source is the licensed ticket brokers of New York. You can be sure of your Avenue Q Broadway show tickets, and they are delivered to your home, well in advance of the schedule of the show.
