Muppets and people living together on ‘Avenue Q’

Tony-award winning musical deals with life after college

POSTED: January 16, 2014 1:00 a.m.

“Avenue Q,” the Tony Award “Triple Crown” winning musical, has set up shop at the Habersham Community Theater in Clarkesville.

Akin to “Sesame Street,” “Avenue Q” is a place where puppets are friends, monsters are good and life lessons are learned. The only difference is the lessons learned on the Avenue are for adults. And North Georgia residents will have a chance to see the award-winning show from Jan. 16-19 and Jan. 23-26 at 1370 Washington St. in Clarkesville.

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling 706-839-1315 or visiting www.habershamtheater.org.

“Avenue Q” is an modern musical focusing on a group of unique 20-somethings making their way in the big city and seeking their purpose in life. The play centers around Princeton and his adventures after he graduates from college and can’t find a job. Princeton is stuck in the classic rut of not being able to find a job because he has no experience. But he is unable to get experience because he can’t find a job.

Also, his B.A. in English doesn’t help him at all. Therefore, he moves to New York’s Avenue Q, a world where various puppets and people coexist. Once he arrives, Princeton meets Kate Monster, the cute girl monster next door; Rod and Nicky, Avenue Q’s answer to Bert and Ernie; Trekkie Monster, an R-rated version of Cookie Monster; washed-up child actor Gary Coleman; and Christmas Eve and Brian, the real-live residents of the Avenue.

The show is rated R for adult language and situations.
