‘fizzing with energy’  Daily Express


Winner of the Tony Awards ‘Triple Crown’ for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and all heart.

Avenue Q is the laugh out loud show that’s had sell out runs on Broadway, in the West End and all across the UK and now you can see what all the fuzz is about at Hackney Empire.

This cheekily charming musical tells the story of the loveable (and unforgettable) characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues – like what do you do with a BA in English? How do you find your purpose? And is the internet really just for…nevermind.

Packed with mischief, bad behavior and a little political incorrectness, AVENUE Q is truly the musical like no other – so don’t let your life suck, book your tickets today!

Created by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (Co-creator of BOOK OF MORMON and writer of the songs for Disney’s FROZEN). From the producers of Footloose, Flashdance and American Idiot.

Rod started his career as a teller and, having benefited from several promotions, is now an investment banker. When not at work, he likes to relax with a book or two and enjoy the peace and quiet. He currently lives with his good friend Nicky.


Nicky likes life in the slow lane. Why do something straight away when it can be done tomorrow. Guilty of being a little on the messy side, he’s lucky to have his buddy Rod, who is very understanding.


Having just graduated from college, Princeton is currently taking his first tentative steps into the big wide world. Currently looking for a direction in life, he can currently be found unemployed down on Avenue Q, with only his rising bills to keep him company.
