Avenue Q - White logo which reads


Avenue Q is the laugh out loud show that’s had sell-out runs on Broadway, in the West End and all across the UK, and now you can see what all the fuzz is about at Mercury at Abbey Field!

Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account; Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster.

This cheekily charming musical tells the story of the loveable (and unforgettable) characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues – like what do you do with a BA in English? How do you find your purpose? And is the internet really just for… nevermind.

Featuring hysterically funny songs, Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart. Packed with mischief, bad behaviour and a little political incorrectness, Avenue Q is truly a musical like no other – so don’t let your life suck, book your tickets today!

Created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (Co-creator of Book Of Mormon and writer of the songs for Disney’s Frozen). From the producers of Footloose, Flashdance and American Idiot.
