Avenue Q is a big show on Broadway, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows every detail about it. So here’s a rundown of what Avenue Q is all about.
Think of Avenue Q like Sesame Street for grown ups. You’re intrigued, aren’t you? The actors playing the puppets remain on stage throughout the entire show, and react to their puppets and mimic their actions. It’s a super fast moving show, and really fun to watch. Even though half the cast is made up of puppets, this show isn’t for kids. There is profanity used throughout the show, and language that is definitely not suited for little ones. There’s even full puppet nudity, and nudity amongst puppets usually leads to…other things. Like we said, this is NOT a kids show.
Avenue Q won 3 Tony Awards in 2004 including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
