The Tony Award-winning musical Avenue Q, the surprise hit of the 2003-2004 season, ended its Broadway run September 13, 2009.
In a dramatic reversal, producers of the Tony-winning Broadway musical took to the stage of the Golden Theatre on what was to have been the show's closing night to announce that it would take the unusual step of moving Off-Broadway, and reopen at New World Stages.
Avenue Q first opened at Off-Broadway’s Vineyard Theatre in March 2003, before transferring to Broadway in July of that year.
Avenue Q continues its current run at New World Stages.
