AVENUE Q is a delightful, laugh-out-loud American musical that was performed on Broadway from 2003 to 2009. The play has been a resounding hit with Vallarta audiences this season! If you haven’t seen the play, it has been extended for 2 performances this week on February 15th and 16th at 7 pm at Act II Entertainment’s Main Stage. Additional shows are also scheduled for February 22nd, 23rd and 25th.
Audiences have been enchanted by this fresh and funny story, that won the prestigious 2004 “Triple Crown” for Tony Awards…. BEST MUSIC, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK!
The story of AVENUE Q takes place in New York City and the street is Avenue Q. This is only address you can afford when you’re fresh out of college, out of a job, or adrift looking for your purpose in life. The story is a coming-of-age parable that satirizes the issues and anxieties of entering adulthood.
Filled with humor, a catchy score and full-sized puppets brought to life by cast members, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that quickly charms and entertains its audience!
Although Avenue Q is very similar to a children’s show where puppets are friends, the show addresses humorous adult issues and is not recommended for children. It is directed by Act II Entertainment’s Musical Director, Alfonso Lopez, and features many of our local talent.
Avenue Q is the perfect choice for those of us who may be wondering how we got to this point in our lives and what our purpose is. You’ll laugh at the serious and rejoice at the marvel of this modern-day musical!
Enjoy Avenue Q at The Main Stage of Act II this Wednesday and Thursday, February 15th and 16th. And for each of these shows, there will be an optional question and answer session with the actors following the performance. The audience will have the opportunity to ask the actors anything! For example: How do you create and maneuver the puppets? How do you rehearse the songs? What is it like to practice choreography and setup sound and lights? And what’s it like to work with the other cast members? Whatever people want to ask!
Act II continues to give to the local community through Avenue Q. Every week they have collected money during “the money song” and have donated it to organizations in Vallarta. Danny Mininni, Act II’s founder/owner recently announced:
“Unbelievable news! Through AVENUE Q we have raised the money needed to pay the teacher for the [Banderas Bay Women’s] shelter this year! WOW Thank you PV. This Wednesday and Thursday we will raise money for Cheryl’s shoebox for soccer shoes for the boys and girls in the outlying poverty areas who are involved in after school soccer teams. SPREAD THE WORD AND LETS HELP MAKE THIS GOAL!”
Don’t miss Avenue Q, the most highly acclaimed play to ever grace the stage at Act II Entertainment!
