M&D Playhouse is pleased to present Avenue Q, the fifth production in our 2017 series of eleven plays about relationships. Music and Lyrics by Jeff Marx, Book by Robert Lopez and Jeff Whitty. Based on an original concept by Robert Lolpez and Jeff Marx. This production is directed by Christopher Bellis.
Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.
The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to finds jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
Avenue Q ios presented Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, May 18- June 3 at Your Theatre, Willow Common, 1857 White Mountain Highway, North Conway. All performances begin at 7:30 PM

Here's what reviewers elsewherehave said about Avenue Q:
"The beauty of Avenue Q is the fact that every single person in the audience...will relate to something on stage. Most of us are familiar with 'Sesame Street' and will appreciate the obvious parodies... And seeing humans living in harmony (or disharmony) together on the same street joyously awakens the child within. But then, you are reminded how adult you have become, adsorbing musical numbers about pornography, homosexuality, racism and the quest we all undertake on a daily basis - finding your purpose in life."
