Avenue Q – Review

A few weeks ago, I went to see Avenue Q here at the SD Civic Theater.  I heard such good things about it and heard it was like a dirty Sesame Street type thing with puppets (though they make sure to let you know they have NOTHING to do with Sesame Street or anything related to it).

It followed Princeton and his new life on Avenue Q after graduating with his B.A. degree.  He has a wide variety of friends on his new block including Kate Monster, Rod, Nicky, Brian, Christmas Eve, and Gary Coleman (yes, they parodied a character of Gary Coleman).  He was searching for a purpose in life and had some experiences along the way.

It was HILARIOUS.  A true dirty-minded, adult, puppet musical.  It had me laughing pretty much the entire time.  With songs like “Everyone’s a little bit racist” and “It sucks to be me,” I couldn’t stop laughing.  If it ever happens to tour in your town, definitely check it out…also, it’s incredibly inappropriate for kids, so leave them at home and have a great sense of humor!
