Ancient Greeks laid the foundations for contemporary theater by composing the first plays and stealing the first Tony Awards from Mount Olympus. Celebrate theatrical progress with today's GrouponLive deal: for $13, you get one reserved ticket to see the Area Stage Company’s production of Avenue Q at the Riviera Theatre in Coral Gables on Friday, December 23, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Reserved orchestra seating is located in section A and B.
The long-running Broadway hit Avenue Q, winner of the Tony triple crown for Best Musical, Book, and Score in 2004, sheds its New York felt to engross Floridians in a rollicking musical packed with irreverent wit and puppets that say the darndest things. The tale of a recent college grad discovering love and his life's purpose in a colorful neighborhood of fabricated, fuzzy neighbors, Avenue Q entertains and enlightens with bouncy songs, sassy dialogue, and topical issues such as politics and bedroom mores. The mature musical is intended for adult and teenage audiences, or parents training their children for a life of detention.
The passionate and lauded crew of the Area Stage Company takes pride in premier productions of beloved contemporary plays and brand-new works that push theatrical boundaries. The collective has set up shop in the recently christened Riviera Theatre, which sports 275 seats for intimate views of puppet shenanigans and stagehands playing rock-paper-scissors in the wings.
