A Broadway Musical

College grad Princeton moves into a shabby apartment way out on Avenue Q, where he meets a number of characters in this laugh-out-loud musical. Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Think Sesame Street for adults where you’ll see actors with and without puppets. Mature themes and language in this funny comedy. Don’t miss this Tony Award-winning show! Shows: 7:30pm, Mar. 1-2, 7-9 and 1:30pm, Mar. 3 at The Grand. Avenue Q Tickets
