On November 11, the long-running off-Broadway production of Robert Lopez, Jeff Marx, and Jeff Whitty's Avenue Q will welcome back Jennifer Barnhart, who made her Broadway debut in 2003 in the original cast. Barnhart will perform the same roles of a Bad Idea Bear and Mrs. T as well as contribute her "second-hand" work with puppets Nicky and Trekkie Monster.

With a cast of people and puppets, Avenue Q tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad in New York City. The only apartment he can afford is way out on Avenue Q, where everyone's looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship, and a "purpose."

Avenue Q has musical supervision by Stephen Oremus, choreography by Ken Roberson, scenic design by Anna Louizos, costume design by Mirena Rada, lighting design by Howell Binkley, and sound design by Acme Sound Partners. The production celebrated its 10th anniversary in New York on July 31.
