A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $25, you get one ticket to any performance of Avenue Q at the San Jose Stage Company until the production's closing on July 17 (up to a $50 value).
Avenue Q, champion of the Tony Award triple crown for winning Best Musical, Score, and Book, illuminates the reality of life in New York City through the lens of a recent college graduate. During irreverent musical numbers, spans of sassy dialogue, and jealous flapping from puppetless hands, human actors emote alongside puppets designed by Rick Lyon, Avenue Q's original creature creator and cast member. Despite its felt-covered characters, this show is not intended for children and is more suited for adults and temporally displaced existential philosophers, thanks to discussions of dating, race relations, and living off coffee grounds. Now in its 28th season, the San Jose Stage Company offers premiere off-Broadway productions in its 200-seat theater. Seating is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
