Avenue Q's cast of puppets, politically incorrect lyrics, and hilarious upending of children's television laughed its way into three Tony awards. Now, Bria Walker brings this Broadway hit to the University of Pittsburgh Stages.  Follow recent graduate, Princeton, as he tries to find his way in the world, with award winning music by Robert Lopez (Frozen, Book of Mormon) and Jeff Marx.

Chris Rawson reviews Avenue Q on KDKA's "What's On Stage" morning show. (Review starts at 2:55.)
It’s pandemonium and puppetry as Burgh Vivant’s Nancy Mimless reviews AVENUE Q – at University of Pittsburgh Stages through November 23rd, 2014.
"It’s an interesting juxtaposition to be in Pitt’s black-box basement theater with a tenement set and consider the “Sesame Street” theme song lyrics about being out in the open air, “On my way to where the air is sweet.” On “Avenue Q,” a dingy street where the rents are cheap, the sweetness is in the people you meet."
"A new University of Pittsburgh Stages production is exceedingly well-done, sharply directed and boasts a flawless cast. Within minutes the "people of fur" (as director Bria Walker dubs them in the program) become real. This is easy, even when confronted repeatedly by the cast who have arms shoved up the puppets' rears."
