‘Avenue Q’ at Horizon Theatre Extended to March 11

Not only has Horizon Theatre brought back “Avenue Q” for a second time in less than a year, the show has been extended through March 11. If the cast is as good as last year’s, it’s no wonder Atlanta can’t get enough.

A Sesame Street-type irreverent comedy for adults, this is the perfect show for even those who don’t like musical theater.

Whether you’ve seen “Avenue Q” on Broadway or the national touring company that whipped in and out of the Cobb Energy Center a couple of years ago, it’s worth it to see the show at Horizon.

Horizon’s cast, intimate theater setting and palpable energy make the show even better than the national production. The current cast features some of the same performers at Horizon’s original version.

“Avenue Q” is a Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. Horizon’s production won seven 2011 Suzi Bass Awards, Atlanta’s version of the Tony Awards.

“Avenue Q” runs through March 11 at Horizon Theatre.
