“Sesame Street” was never like this!
It could be Sesame Street, but the neighborhood is shabbier. The residents look like the Muppets, but they’re a lot more worldly. Plus, their human alter egos are very much a visible part of the zany, adult action.
Welcome to Avenue Q, the runaway Broadway musical comedy that won the 2003 Tony Triple Crown of Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. Ten years later, it is still running strong off-Broadway in the intimate setting for which it was originally designed.
With issues ranging from sexual identity and porn to racism and relationships, unemployment and even schadenfreude!, Avenue Q packs an intoxicatingly universal punch.
“…the amazing thing about this show is how sweet it is, how much you will care about the characters.”
