The Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. This puppet-filled musical follows a group of 20-somethings seeking their purpose in big-city life. The laugh-out musical tells the story of recent college grad Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Think of this as Sesame Street for adults. Directed by Kathleen Horrigan and Ed Trout.

This classic “musical fable” returns to Footlite. This story of the ultimate stage mother, Rose Hovick, as she pushes her two daughters, June and Louise, towards fame and fortune in the 1920s and 1930s. They travel across the United States just as vaudeville is dying and burlesque is born. This Tony Award-nominated musical is based on the memoirs of famed stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. The show’s great score includes such classics as “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away from Me,” “If Momma Were Married,” All I Need is the Girl,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “You Gotta Get A Gimmick” and “Together Wherever We Go."
