Avenue Q now on stage now at Music Mountain Theatre through June 30th

(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) – Now on stage at Music Mountain Theatre (MMT) in Lambertville, New Jersey for a three-weekend run (June 14 – June 30) is Avenue Q, the 2003 winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart, and will be the eighth mainstage show of MMT’s 2024 season.


With music and lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, and a book by Jeff Whitty, Avenue Q is often described as Sesame Street for adults. Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.

Meet Princeton (Riley Frankhouser), a recent college graduate who moves into a shabby New York apartment out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.


Among the residents of Avenue Q are Kate Monster (Jennifer Pilchman), a perky kindergarten assistant teacher; Rod (Michael Hall), a straight-laced Republican investment banker; Nicky (Karl Weigand), Rod’s polar opposite roommate; Brian (Jason Kohn), an unemployed, but aspiring comedian; Christmas Eve (Jenn Hsiao), Brian’s fiancée and a clientless therapist; Trekkie Monster (David Whiteman), a recluse who lives more online than anywhere else; Gary Coleman (Sarah Harrison), a former child star now serving as the apartment building’s superintendent; and many other colorful characters!

Avenue Q will run on the MMT stage from June 14th–June 30th, with 8:00 pm evening performances on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00 pm matinee performances on Saturdays and Sundays. Avenue Q contains adult themes, language, and puppet nudity, and is recommended for audiences 15 years and older.

For all MMT shows, discounted tickets are available for students, seniors, and members of the military, as well as for subscribers to MMT, and in group sales of fifteen or more.
