Stepping Out

‘Avenue Q’ remains on the map; play closes June 22 in Los Altos

The Los Altos Stage Company’s production of “Avenue Q” is set to close June 22 at Bus Barn Theater.

With a cast of puppets and humans, “Avenue Q” has been described as “‘Sesame Street’ for adult audiences.”

It is an irreverent musical comedy about Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone’s looking for the same things: a decent job, a stable relationship and a life purpose. Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that the real world isn’t so bad after all.

The play features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, and book by Jeff Whitty.

Michael Ryken directs the Los Altos Stage Company production. The cast includes Anthony Chan, Cassie Blake, Mylissa Malley, Warren Wernick, David Mister, Mark Sanders, Adam Cotugno, Kathryn Han, Nicole Julien, Tomas Theriot and Jen Wheatonfox.

Due to adult situations, “Avenue Q” may be inappropriate for children under 13 or people who are easily offended.

Shows are slated 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sunday at Bus Barn, 97 Hillview Ave. Tickets are $18-$36.

For tickets and more information, call 941-0551 or visit losaltosstage.org.
