Avenue Q was “Only for Now”
But It Was Great While It Lasted
The lyrics “...only for now” were prophetic as the cast of MPO’s Avenue Q sang them for the last time while the curtain came down on the sixth and final performance of the acclaimed production March 10th at the Kelsey Theatre.
“In my mind, and in our preparation to teach ourselves how to stage the show, this production has been
years in the making,” said John Maurer, the show's director and the company’s Artistic Director. “We
couldn’t have asked for a better outcome,” he added, “and we have an amazing cast, crew, orchestra,
and production team to thank for that."
