Princeton is a 22 year old college graduate, with a B.A. in English. 

Princeton can be described as a wide-eyed, naive individual, who is open to taking on life's challenges, and always taking them on head first. Despite this, however, Princeton can get discouraged quite easily.

Kate is a main protagonist in Avenue Q. She is a monster who lives on Avenue Q. She is Princeton's love interest, and she likes him as well, she is 23 years old.

Kate is a kindergarten teaching assistant. Her boss is Mrs. Thistletwat.

Lucy the Slut (Lead): Female, 18 + 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Lucy the Slut is a vixenish but really cute night club singer. She is a sexy, seductive singer at the Around the Clock Café, a fictional local eatery and bar in New York City. Even though she has a minor role in the show, she is probably one of the most well-known characters from the show.

Nicky (Lead): Male, 18 + 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Nicky is a 25 year-old Ernie-like slacker and has no job. He lives in an apartment with Rod. He first appears complaining why it sucks to be him- he lives with an uptight roomate. Throughout the show, Nicky tries to urge Rod out of the closet

Trekkie Monster (Lead): Male, 18 + 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

He is a Bert-like character and an investment banker on Wall Street. He lives in the same apartment as Nicky. Rod is a closet homosexual, but at the end of the musical he comes out of the closet.

Brian (Lead): Male, 18 + 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Brian is engaged to the Japanese therapist, Christmas Eve, and eventually makes her his wife

Gary Coleman (Lead): Male, 18 + 

Ethnicity: All Ethnicities

Gary Coleman has been the superintendent on Avenue Q for 12 years now. He’s seen lots of people come and go. Same shit different squatter. He’s not bitter just frustrated. He’s happy enough. He’s alive and has a job. If only he wasn’t always the reason for schadenfreude. Oh well. Thats life

Christmas Eve is grateful for her spot on the avenue; however, she cannot wait for her husband to make enough money to get a new place. She has been a therapist for the past 5 years but has a hard time keeping clients (and she can’t figure out why!) She hopes to one day create world peace through her therapy… But she’d also settle for her husband getting a job.
