20at20 offers one of the cheapest chances to catch the hilarious Avenue Q before the Tony Award-winning musical ends its 15-year run April 28. Theatergoers can also pay far below Broadway prices for the Four Seasons musical Jersey Boys, which is now playing at New World Stages after a decade-long Broadway run. Other musical theater offerings for 20at20 include the multigenerational Sistas: The Musical, the Ethel Merman/Book of Mormon crossover The Book of Merman, and This One’s for the Girls, which celebrates women’s history through popular song. NEWSical the Musical features more current subject matter, meanwhile, using music to make a mockery of today’s headlines.
