Purpose: Saluting Avenue Q

PlayBlog   Purpose: Saluting Avenue Q
As the Tony Award-winning Jeff Marx-Robert Lopez-Jeff Whitty musical Avenue Q nears the end of its six-year run at Broadway's Golden Theatre, we thought we'd take a look back at the musical via its Playbill.com coverage.

What follows are links to various Avenue Q-related news articles, special features, photo calls and audio and video offerings that have appeared on Playbill.com since the puppet-friendly musical's Off-Broadway debut at the Vineyard Theatre.

We hope you enjoy traveling down Avenue Q.
