The crown on the Hippodrome’s 40th Anniversary season is the internationally beloved Broadway sensation Avenue Q. Winner of the Tony Award’s “Triple Crown” from Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, Avenue Q is a coming-of-age musical where characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents, and by certain fuzzy puppets on public television, that they were “special” and “could do anything”; but as adults, they have discovered to their surprise and dismay that in the real world their options are limited, and they are no more “special” than anyone else.
Produced by the Hippodrome Theatre, in partnership with the UF School of Theatre + Dance (College of Fine Arts).
Directed by Lauren Caldwell & Charlie Mitchell.

Written by Neil Simon; Directed by Judith Williams.
Set in 1937 Brooklyn, Neil Simon’s beloved comedy offers a semi-autobiographical glimpse into the life of a Jewish-American family through the eyes of 15-year-old Eugene Jerome. Brighton Beach Memoirs is a poignant coming-of-age story of Eugene’s encounters with a crowded household, an imminent war, and most excitingly, girls.
