Avenue Q, The Musical
Book: Jeff Whitty Music and Lyrics: Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez
Direction: YLLANA (David Ottone) A production of: Smedia, Vertigo, Drive and Trasgo (Vorágine and El Reló).
Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate, has just moved to New York as he desperately tries to follow his dreams even if he is broken. The only affordable rent for him is in the modest Avenue Q, even if his neighbours seem to be pretty nice.
There is Brian, a wannabe comedian with his girlfriend Merry Christmas, a therapist with no clients; the lazy Brian with his flat mate Rod, a Republican investment banker with a dark secret; the Internet addicted Trekky Monster and Kate, a kindergarten teaching assistant. Can you believe that the neighborhood’s handyman is Gary Coleman? (the major child celebrity of the TV series Arnold – betrayed and ruined by his parents, unemployed, he died in poverty last August 2010).
Princeton, together with his new friends, fights to find job, love and their real goal in life.
Avenue Q is about real life and addresses issues like sex, drinking and surfing the Web for porn.

“If the justice still exists, then Avenue Q should get a longer sit down, not only because it is one of the best and most faithful Broadway adaptation that Madrid has ever seen, but also because of the professionalism, respect and honesty of their creative team. Looking at them, we can only say “Great job, guys!” (and buying new tickets to see the show once again). (…) It is directed by the always fantastic Yllana...” -K! Koult-
