Avenue Q opened on Broadway 10 years ago today. It's a Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book and is simply a blast. Part flesh (humans) and part felt (puppets) - Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical.

In it, we meet Princeton a recent college grad who moves into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets Kate, Rod, Trekkie, Lucy the Slut, Gary Coleman, and many other colorful types who help Princeton discover his life’s purpose.

Avenue Q is now being produced by the Adirondack Theatre Festival and on stage through August 3rd.

Avenue Q at ATF is headed by artists involved with the Broadway production. Gary Adler, an ATF regular, was the show’s original Musical Director and Jennifer Barnhart, the show’s Director, was in the Original Broadway cast - sticking with the show for its entire Broadway run. Both join us this morning along with Producing Artistic Director of ATF – Mark Fleischer and cast members: Noah Zachary who plays Princeton and Rod, Stacia Newcomb who plays Lucy and Kate Monster, and Rob Morrison who plays Nicky and Trekkie Monster.
