Avenue Q opens at the Hippodrome Theatre

By

The toe-tapping, irreverent yet heartfelt musical “Avenue Q” opens Friday night at the Hippodrome State Theatre in Gainesville.

Avenue Q won three Tony Awards for best musical, best score, and best book. University of Florida professor of theatre and dance, Charlie Mitchell is co-directing the play in partnership with the Hippodrome. Mitchell speaks above about the unique challenge of using puppetry in the production.

He points out, too, that this particular play is not intended for all audiences. “Avenue Q” opens Friday at 8 p.m.
