This refreshing musical addresses and satirizes the anxieties associated with entering adulthood. Its characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents, and by Sesame Street, that they were “extraordinary” and “could do anything;” but as
adults, they have discovered to their surprise that in the real world their options are limited, and they are actually ordinary like everyone else. Avenue Q is notable for the use of puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers.

A musical staged reading based on the 200 year-old Japanese fairy tale, PEACH BOY cleverly blends the well-known story of Momotarō, his quest to conquer the evil Ogre King (Oni), and that of a love story with his newly discovered love Hōseki. It takes you on an exciting journey – from Momotarō’s tiny Japanese village of Heiontochi to the Ogre Caves on Kika Island. PEACH BOY is a timeless tale of love, adventure, and coming-of-age; crafted to excite you as it restores your faith in never being told you’re too old to dream.
