Avenue Q in Vancouver, Win Ticketsby
Avenue Q, the Broadway hit with a Tony-winning score, is coming to the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts this February 1-5.
The cast of puppets tell the story of Princeton, “a bright-eyed college grad who moves to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. 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’. Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that ‘the real world’ isn’t so bad, after all.”
Tickets are currently available through the Centre’s box office. I also happen to have two tickets available for opening night, February 1, 2011. Here’s how you can enter to win:
I will draw one winner at 12:00pm on Sunday, January 23, 2011. Note, this show is not for those 16 years of age or younger as the puppet cast deals with adult humor and topics, comic vulgarities, and “life lessons” for adults.
Update The winner is @angelmok on Twitter. Have a great time at the show!

Favourite musical – Mama Mia
‘Tis the season for Broadway to finally make it’s way to Vancouver!
Already got my tickets for Wicked for June and would love to see Avenue Q!
My favourite musical is Wicked! Going for a 2nd time when it comes to Vancouver!
All time favourite musical would have to be RENT which I was lucky enough to see on Broadway in New York just before it ended it’s run in 2009!
I’m pretty sure my favorite musical is Avenue Q, although I’ve never seen the whole thing.
Favorite one I’ve actually seen? Evil Dead: The Musical!
I actually already have tickets to Avenue Q, but sweet bleeding jesus I’m so excited, I want to see it twice. (I’m also buying tickets to see Wicked in the summer with my mom, which would be her favorite musical.) 🙂
I haven’t been to any musicals (sadly) so this might be my favorite if I get to watch!
billy elliot! saw it in london and it was amazing.
Phantom of the Opera
So many favourites, I’m gonna go with Moulin Rouge.
Fave musical is probably Wicked.
Wicked is my favorite!!! But I do wanna watch Avenue Q!
I loved the Cats production 🙂
Phantom of the Opera is one of my favourites!
I’ve always loved Annie. Would LOVE to see Avenue Q!
I would have to rank Mama Mia as my first and Oliver next 🙂
My favourite musical changes so frequently. I’m a big fan of Little Shop of Horrors, A Little Night Music, & Wicked.
It’s a tough call but I think my favorite musical is Cabaret – but Avenue Q is high up there!
Les Miz is my favourite!!
Yes! I super-duper want to see Avenue Q!
Favourite musical? Definitely Phantom of the Opera. Or, The Wiz.
Fav musical…Legally Blonde
Phantom – love that story!! Q looks great!
But have heard good things about Avenue Q and Wicked so would love to see those two this year when it comes to Vancouver 🙂
Free tix would be nice since I’m trying to save to buy a place 🙂
West Side Story
I’m not really into musicals, but Avenue Q looks great and is my front running for a fav from the clips I’ve seen.
Is there a musical I’ve seen and not loved?
Great ones listed above with Wicked and Little Shop, but my favourite, for sentimental reasons is Sound of Music.
favorite musical – “Priscilla: Queen of the Desert” saw it in London’s West End. LOVE MUSICALS.
My favourite musical is probably Bridges, a historical look at Vancouver as told through the construction of its Bridges. It was written and produced by the VSB as part of the Centennial celebration in 1986. But if we’re talking fictional musicals. then that vampire rock opera from “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” also looked pretty sweet.
Two favorite musicals from opposite ends of the spectrum are Miss Saigon and Little Shop of Horrors!
Love “Moulin Rouge”!
Guys & Dolls
Wicked and In the Heights top my list!
All time favourite I’ve seen on the stage is still Les Miserables however more contemporary musical I loved Little Shop of Horrors. As for on film, I’m a sucker for Newsies.
Absolutely LOVE moulin Rouge!
Sunday in the park with George. This was the musical that introduced me to Sondheim and I’ve been a fan of his ever since
Favourite musical would have to be Sound of Music!
So far, Rent! Who knows, hopefully Avenue Q?
My favourite musical by far is The Producers
I loved Wicked… this looks interesting too though!
Having a great broadway year! Started off with jersey boys in vegas, seeing rock of ages in seattle, got legally blonde here soon and now ave q!
OMG, musicals is my middle name! Love them all, but I am a sucker for Cabaret.
Les Miserables was my favorite.
The Phantom of the Opera!
Wicked is my fave!
that would be be Rent!
My favourite musical of all time is Les Miserables! Arts Club did a amazing production of it a couple of years ago! but i LOVE all musicals with Avenue Q being one of my favourites as well! It would be very cool to win this as this is for a show on my birthday!
It’s been years since I’ve seen a musical in the theatre, but I still love Les Miserables all these years later.
I’ve seen clips from Avenue Q on Youtube though, and I’d love to see it live.
Spamalot with Avenue Q as a close second
Into the Woods is my favourite.
I’m going to have to say West Side Story!
I love Rent and Wicked even if I’ve just heard songs from Wicked 😀
Love Les Miserables
Cats. I love cats.
My favourite musical of all time is RENT. It’s life-changing.
Cats. Meow, meow.
I’m not exactly to sure if my list would classify as musicals. I enjoy watching youtube style musicals such as Dr Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog
Wicked was amazing!
favourite musical of all time: Phantom of the Opera. Seen it so many times. Even went to Paris to see the seat where the Phantom sat!
My favorite musical is phantom of the opera!
First musical I ever saw was Cats and I still love it!
Les Mis is a sentimental favourite, but Wicked is great too. Would love to see Avenue Q.
Phantom of the Opera. for sure!
I love the all time classic GREASE.
I saw HAIRSPRAY in New York and I fell in love. I’ll see it again in Vancouver this spring!
I love them all, but have a soft spot for my first-time big musical production. I saw Jesus Christ Superstar in London when I was a teenager. Looking forward to Wicked this summer.
My favorite of all times is Wicked 😀
My fave is a tie…Cats or Mama Mia
Les MisÃ©rables or Phantom of the Opera depending on my mood.
Rent is my fave musical! Second comes Les Mis.
RENT! was great
Wicked was phenomenal.
Phantom of the Opera is my favorite.
Phantom of the Opera
Rent is my favourite of anything I’ve seen. Both Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables are on my wish list. I used to play the music from both of them on the piano, but I’ve never had a chance to see them!
I love Les Miserables. I am also partial to Cats only because it was my first Musical ever – I think I was 9 years old – and listened to the soundtrack on cassette over and over again.
I love them all, I saw “Avenue Q” in London and loved it. I’ve pretty much loved all of them live. I guess I have to say “Sound of Music” seeing it is my favourite TV musical…
Fav musical: rent

The producers were great.
My fav was South Pacific in NYC.. i wanted to watch Ave Q there but ran out of time.
Oldie but a goodie – Oklahoma!

Hi Miss 604! My first post didn’t work…

The Producers (Broadway version) is my favourite musical. I also loved “A Little Night Music” having seen it twice. Chicago’s fun. Cabaret. Billy Elliott. I love musicals.
The first musical I ever saw was Showboat when I was 7 years old at the Ford Theatre (now the Centre for Performing Arts). Since then it’s always been my favourite.
My favorite musical would have to be RENT!
