“Avenue Q” opening at Music Mountain Theatre


Friday, June 14 will bring a new mainstage production to Music Mountain Theatre (MMT) in Lambertville, N.J., for a three-weekend run.

“Avenue Q,” the 2003 winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart, and will be the eighth mainstage show of MMT’s 2024 season.

With music and lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, and a book by Jeff Whitty, “Avenue Q” is often described as Sesame Street for adults. Filled with gut-busting humor and a catchy score, not to mention puppets, “Avenue Q” is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.

Meet Princeton (Riley Frankhouser), a recent college graduate who moves into a shabby New York apartment 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 find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

“Avenue Q” will run on the MMT stage from June 14 to 30. It contains adult themes, language, and puppet nudity, and is recommended for audiences 15 years and older.

For all MMT shows, discounted tickets are available for students, seniors, and members of the military, as well as for subscribers to MMT, and in group sales of fifteen or more.
