(MANASQUAN, NJ) -- Algonquin Arts Theatre is presenting the musical, Avenue Q from August 12-20, 2023. Winner of the Tony Triple Crown for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, this laugh-out-loud musical - featuring actors and puppets - tells the story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment on Avenue Q. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

Princeton soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood, which is a racy, adults-only cross between South Park and Sesame Street.

The cast includes Matthew Johnson (Princeton), Jackie Nuzzo (Kate Monster), Michael Morch (Rod), Will Platt (Nicky), Daisha Davis (Gary Coleman), Suann Chen (Christmas Eve), John C. Short (Trekkie Monster), Lex Friedman (Brian), Emily Demaio (Lucy), Bathany Miranda (Girl Bear / Mrs. T), and Chris Coleman (Boy Bear).
