Outrageous Comedy Musical Avenue Q Is Coming To Manchester

Guess Q’s back!

The naughtiest puppets in town are coming to Manchester.

Following five years in the West End, sell-out runs worldwide and smash hit tours in 2014, 2015 and 2016 (packed with mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness!), comedy musical Avenue Q will return to the Palace Theatre from October 21 – 26 with all of your favourite fuzzy friends. 

The Tony Award-winning Musical, created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, Co-creator of Book of Mormon and songwriter for Disney’s Frozen, is an irresistibly charming tale of the loveable characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues.

Hilarious, cheeky and uproariously entertaining, with a cast of 11 hugely talented performers and puppets, Avenue Q is the musical like no other.

Featuring hysterically funny songs such as The Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist the story follows Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account.

Along with Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster, Lucy the Sl*t (the name says it all!) and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.
