Take a stroll down AVENUE Q in Glasgow this August


A smash hit on Broadway, in the West End and most recently in a critically-acclaimed 2014 UK Tour, award-winning comedy musical Avenue Q will bringing a host of fuzzy friends to Glasgow, playing at the King’s Theatre from Tuesday 25 to Saturday 29 August.

Featuring the naughtiest puppets in town, brought hilariously to life by an ensemble cast of eleven performers, Avenue Q is a Tony Award-winning musical about growing up, dreaming big, and finding your purpose in life.

Sarah Harlington will play Kate Monster/Lucy the Slut, with Richard Lowe as Princeton/Rod and Arina II as Christmas Eve. Returning to the show following last year's tour are Stephen Arden, from Glasgow, as Nicky/Trekkie Monster, Richard Morseas Brian, Etisyai Philip as Gary Coleman and Jessica Parker as Mrs T/ Bad Idea Bear. The cast also includes Michael Woolston-ThomasCleopatra JosephFelicity Wright and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland graduate Douglas Walker.


Meet Princeton, a bright-eyed graduate who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Soon discovering that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q, he finds himself moving in with some truly quirky characters. There’s Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancée Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his closet gay Republican roommate Rod, an Internet ‘sexpert’ called Trekkie Monster and a very cute kindergarten teacher named Kate Monster. And would you believe the building’s superintendent is Gary Coleman?! Featuring hysterically funny songs includingThe Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist, Avenue Q is a hilarious musical with a warm (and very fuzzy) heart.
