QUICK TAKES

October 10, 2006|Lynne Heffley

After ending its exclusive run in Las Vegas in May, "Avenue Q," the 2004 Tony Award-winner for best musical, became a free agent, and although a national tour has not been announced, the R-rated, people-and-puppets blockbuster is coming to Southern California next year.

San Diego's Old Globe Theatre plans to mount its own production of the musical comedy at Spreckels Theatre downtown. It is scheduled to run from June 30 through Aug. 5 as part of the Old Globe's summer season.

Meanwhile, the New York production of "Avenue Q," which features music and lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx and a book by Jeff Whitty, has surpassed the three-year mark at the Golden Theatre on Broadway.
