An international favorite that's become a wildly successful New York theatrical institution.

 Avenue Q is the story of Princeton.
He is a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with a truckload
of dreams and little money.
He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice.
There's Brian, the unemployed comedian and his therapist fianceé - Christmas Eve. There's also Nicky
the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod: a Republican investment banker with a secret; an Internet
addict called Trekkie Monster and a cute kindergarten teaching assistant named Kate. And, the
building's superintendent is Gary Coleman (yes, THAT Gary Coleman!)
Together, Princeton and his newfound friends/characters struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive
purpose in life. Who knew it would be so challenging  ... or so stimulating ?

 Daryl Roth Theatre
101 East 15th Street at Union Square East
Telecharge: (212) 239 6200 /

 Extended indefinitely! Creative and thrilling performance event.
No plot but lots of special effects and very loud music.

From the creators of the smash-hit De La Guarda, Fuerza Bruta is an event where worlds collide, dreams are real
and reality takes a back seat. The visuals are spectacular. The effects are stunning. Performers run and tumble
across a vertical wall of technicolor cloth, a man runs headlong through a wall. Most extraordinary of all performers
dance in a watery world above the audience's heads. This all takes place to a soundtrack that traverses thumping
club beats to the mellow sounds of new world music.
Fuerza Bruta took Europe, South America and Miami by storm - and has been captivating New York audiences as
one of the most talked about theatrical experiences On or Off Broadway!
