ORONO, Maine — The University of Maine School of Performing Arts Theatre/Dance Division is thrilled to present Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx’s hilariously irreverent hit Broadway musical Avenue Q at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10, 11, 16-18 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 12 and 19, in the Hauck Auditorium, on the UMaine campus. This award winning musical has been keeping audiences howling around the world. Part Sesame Street, part Sex in the City.
Admission price will be $15 per person or free with a Student Maine Card.
Adults love AVENUE Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it’s appropriate for kids. We’ll try to clear that up. AVENUE Q is great for teenagers because it’s about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because AVENUE Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. It’s hard to say what exact age is right to see AVENUE Q – parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this – if you DO bring your teenagers to AVENUE Q, they’ll think you’re really cool.
Avenue Q has not been authorized or approved by the Jim Henson Company or Sesame Workshop, which have no responsibility for its content.
