The crown on the Hippodrome’s 40th Anniversary season is the internationally beloved Broadway sensation AVENUE Q. Winner of the Tony Award’s “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is a coming-of-age musical where characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents, and by certain fuzzy puppets on public television, that they were “special” and “could do anything”; but as adults, they have discovered to their surprise and dismay that in the real world their options are limited, and they are no more “special” than anyone else.
