Winner of the Tony Awards ‘Triple Crown’ for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and all heart. Avenue Q is the laugh out loud show that’s had sell out runs on Broadway, in the West End and all across the UK and now you can see what all the fuzz is about at the Ipswich Regent Theatre. This cheekily charming musical tells the story of the loveable (and unforgettable) characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues – like what do you do with a BA in English? How do you find your purpose? And is the internet really just for… nevermind. Created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (Cocreator of BOOK OF MORMON and writer of the songs for Disney’s FROZEN).
