'Avenue Q' returning to L.A.

HOLLYWOOD - "Avenue Q" - the Broadway musical about real life in New York City, as told by a cast of people and puppets through an acclaimed, Tony-winning book and score - will return to Los Angeles for a one-week engagement March 1-6, 2011 at the Pantages Theatre."Avenue Q" tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone's looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship and a "purpose." Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that "the real world" isn't so bad after all. The New York Times hailed "Avenue Q" as "a breakthrough musical of a very different stripe. Savvy, sassy and delicious!" "Avenue Q" features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, a book by Jeff Whitty and is directed by Jason Moore. Priority seating for "Avenue Q" will be offered to Broadway L.A. season ticket holders as an optional add-on event with any season package.
