The coming-of-age musical “Avenue Q,” which features a unique blend of actors and puppets, is in its final three weeks at the Hippodrome State Theatre in downtown Gainesville.

The original play garnered Tony Awards for best musical, best score and best book. WUFT-‘s Donna Green-Townsend talked with two New York actors who are in the play, Michael Hull and Jennifer Lauren Brown, about the popularity of this “adult-themed” comedy.
