Genre: Comedy
New York premiere by Martin Blank, directed by Katherine M. Carter

A 30-year-old woman on the lam from a New Jersey mental institution becomes the queen of Madison Avenue. Her extreme advertising campaigns are wildly popular, winning awards and blue chip clients. As well as the heart of New York’s most eligible bachelor. Still, her commercials wreak havoc with her boss, the Catholic Church, and certain cat owners. Avenue of the Americas is a dark, comic ride that asks the question; how far would you go to have it all?

Cast: Virginia Bartholomew, Timothy J. Cox, Chris Davis, Leo Goodman & Laura Yost

Producers: Kristin Cantwell & Phil Newsom
