Avenue Q returns to Los Angeles for one week only March 1 – 6, 2011 at the Pantages Theatre. The Tony Award-winning musical features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty, and is based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx; directed by Jason Moore.

You’ll meet Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone's looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship, and a "purpose." Eventually, he learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that the real world isn't so bad, after all.

Residents of Avenue Q include David Colston Corris (Princeton, Rod), Ashley Eileen Bucknam (Kate Monster, Lucy & Others), Michael Liscio, Jr. (Nicky, Trekkie Monster, Bear & Others), Lisa Helmi Johanson (Christmas Eve), Tim Kornblum (Brian), Anita Welch (Gary Coleman) and Kerri Brackin (Mrs. T, Bear & Others), along with ensemble members Ben Hart, Kate Lippstreu, Katie McCreary, and Zach Trimmer.

Puppet design is by Rick Lyon, with orchestrations by Stephen Oremus, choreography by Ken Roberson, scenic design by Anna Louizos, costume design by Mirena Rada, lighting design by Howell Binkley, and sound design by Lew Mead. Associate director is Evan Ensign and music supervisor is Andrew Graham.

Due to adult situations (like full-puppet nudity), Avenue Q may be inappropriate for kids under 13.

The Pantages is also holding a daily day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of $25 tickets in the first two rows. 2 hours prior to show time, people who present themselves at the Pantages box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum and then thirty minutes later, names are drawn for a limited number of front orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only. The lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person. ID is required to purchase the tickets.

For tickets and more information go to or call 1-800-982-ARTS(2787).
