It’s been nine years since Avenue Q first transferred to the West End, where it ran for five years before touring the UK.
It has since appeared in more than ten countries all over the world, and now the triple Tony Awards winner (for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book) is once again on tour around Britain.
Produced by Cameron Mackintosh, Avenue Q is co-created by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Robert Lopez, who also co-created the hit Broadway and West End musical The Book of Mormon.
The cast for the show’s UK tour features Sarah Harlington as Kate Monster/Lucy the Slut and Richard Lowe as Princeton/Rod. Returning to the show following last year’s tour are Stephen Arden as Nicky/Trekkie Monster, Richard Morse as Brian, Etisyai Philip as Gary Coleman and Jessica Parker as Mrs T/Bad Idea Bear. The cast also includes Michael Woolston-Thomas, Douglas Walker and Cleopatra Joseph.
Avenue Q is produced by the Sell a Door Theatre Company, which first presented this new production in a six-month tour in 2014. Formed in 2007, Sell a Door creates touring productions aimed at engaging young adults in live theatre. Its recent productions include a forthcoming UK Tour of The History Boys, Seussical in the West End and the debut UK tour of Spring Awakening. While its productions of Avenue Q and Seussical will also play seasons in Hong Kong this November.
