What’s happening in Long Beach This Week – November 3-10, 2013
Things to do in Long Beach, CA this week
The Long Beach Playhouse is now featuring Avenue Q in their studio theater.
“Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt, and all heart. A laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad who moves into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned. He discovers that it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.”
This show may have puppets, but due to the mature content, you may want to leave the kids at home. The show runs until November 16th on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Tickets are $24, available on the Long Beach Playhouse website.
The South Bay Fall Home and Garden Show is at the Long Beach convention center on Nov. 8-10, 2013.
