When: Various times Where: Chattanooga Theatre Centre, 400 River Street Cost: $20-30
What is not unusual about the Chattanooga Theatre Centre's production of the Tony Award-winning musical comedy "Avenue Q" is that it follows a motley group of New York twenty-somethings who face life's challenges together, struggling to find jobs, dates, and their elusive purpose in life. What is unusual about the irreverent farce, which opens May 3 for seven performances only, is that three actors share the stage with a group of raunchy, foulmouthed, politically-incorrect puppets, operated and voiced by other actors in full view of the audience. “Avenue Q” is rated R and contains mature themes, mature language and mature situations for mature audiences. For tickets, call the CTC box office at 423-267-8534 or visit TheatreCentre.com.
