Avenue Q
Buy Tickets

6 May to 2 June

Sesame Street meets Pulp Fiction in this unruly musical, a popular favourite at Brisbane Arts Theatre. Fresh out of college, Princeton is seeking to make his mark on the world, but can only afford an apartment on Avenue Q. While it may lack basic amenities, it does have an abundance of furry, colourful tenants.

Petrie Terrace becomes Avenue Q for the fourth and final(?) time! This Tony Award-winning musical is a must for anyone who's ever pondered life's big decisions or enjoyed a touch of schadenfreude.

By Robert Lopez & Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty

By arrangement with Music Theatre International (Australasia) and Hal Leonard Australia

Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem a little, er, fuzzy on whether it's appropriate for kids. We'll try to clear that up. Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it's about real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn. It's hard to say what exact age is right to see Avenue Q—parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children. But we promise you this: if you DO bring your teenagers to Avenue Q, they'll think you're really cool.


140 minutes, including one 20-minute interval.
