Avenue Q and Les Misérables at Phoenix Theatre: Both run on select dates through May 25 (Updated: Avenue Q has been extended through May 31, and Les Misérables through June 1)
The best of Broadway comes to town at the intimate Phoenix Theatre. No seat is too far from the energy of the stage as you take in either of the popular productions. Bring the tissues for the classic and ever-popular Les Misérables and keep the children at home for the hilariously foul-mouthed puppets of Avenue Q. Both productions have been receiving rave reviews and are only in town for a couple more weeks.
