Welcome back to our blog after our short break, we hope you are enjoying the beautiful sunny spell we are having. This weeks blog will be short, but we still have a few things to share.
Stowaways and UWS Present …… AVENUE Q
AVENUE Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice. There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancee Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod—a Republican investment banker who seems to have some sort of secret; an Internet addict called Trekkie Monster; and a very cute kindergarten teaching assistant named Kate. And would you believe the building’s superintendent is Gary Coleman?!? (Yes, that Gary Coleman.) Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Stowaways/UWS are proud to present one of the first Scottish performances of this hysterically funny adult comedy. The adult nature of this show makes it accessible to all by its brilliant delivery of a cast of 16 muppet puppets especially created for the Broadway and West end performances, expertly handled and voiced by the students of the musical theatre BA hons degree from UWS.
This show contains some strong adult and satirical comedy.
