Coming to South Florida stages: Crossing lines with 'Avenue Q' and 'Bridges Not Walls'

Here’s what’s happening in South Florida theaters this week and next.

AVENUE Q

The musical comedy, with its R-rated riffs on “Sesame Street” puppets and coming-of-age parables, is being staged by MNM Theatre Company. “Avenue Q” premiered off-Broadway in 2003, and five months later moved to the Great White Way proper, bringing home three Tonys in 2004 for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.

When: May 25-June 10; 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays; 1:30 matinee Saturdays and Sundays

Where: Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach

Cost: $55

Contact: 561-832-7469 or Kravis.org

BRIDGES NOT WALLS

This performance is the culmination of a two-year collaboration between the Mexico City Ballet (Compañia de Danza Clásica Quintana Roo) and Dance Now! Miami. The piece addresses the hot-button issue of immigration. There will be a world premiere of “Puentes No Muros” from the Mexican troupe and an updating of the “Bridges Not Walls” segment from the Miami company. Jasmany Hernández, director of the Mexico City Ballet, says in a press release, “Creating a ‘transit of artistry’ between our two countries, that today seem divided by real and political walls, is the most exciting thing about this project.”

When: 8:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19

Where: The Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

Cost: $35 general admission. $15 for students (at the box office in person only)
