Guess Q’s Back: Avenue Q Returns to The New Theatre Cardiff

The naughtiest puppets in town return to The New Theatre Cardiff this Monday (June 17) with smash hit comedy musical Avenue Q.

A musical like no other, Avenue Q is described as a cheeky, uproariously entertaining production combining hugely talented performers and puppets to try to make sense of life’s burning questions, incorporating funny musical numbers and entertaining comedy.

Princeton is a bright-eyed graduate with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Joining him in trying to make sense of adulthood are characters such as out-of-work comedian Brian, his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve and Nicky, the good-hearted slacker. A host of memorable characters sing hilarious songs such as What Do You Do with a B.A. in English? in this warm (and fuzzy) hearted musical.

The story follows loveable characters on a downtown New York street, packed with mischief and bad behaviour. Avenue Q is a Tony Award-winning musical created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, which has enjoyed five years in the West End, sell-out runs worldwide and smash hit tours in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Avenue Q first opened Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2003, before transferring to Broadway later that year where it won three Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. In 2006 it transferred to the West End where it ran for five years before touring the UK.

The musical is produced by Footloose and Little Shop of Horrors producers Selladoor Worldwide. The puppets are designed by Paul Jomain of Q Puppets with Puppet Coaching by Nigel Plaskitt. Avenue Q is directed and choreographed by Cressida Carré, designed by Richard Evans, Lighting Designed by Charlie Morgan Jones and Sound Designed by Chris Bogg.

Avenue Q is suitable for audiences aged 14+, and runs from Monday June 17 to Saturday June 22. Tickets range from £15-£37, and can be booked from the box office on 02920 87 88 89 or online
