But just about anyone who has ever made the transition to adulthood can relate to both the people, puppets and story of Avenue Q.
A recent university graduate moves into his first apartment and has to navigate love, work, friendships, and the challenges of everyday life in this Sesame Street-style satire of post-college life, now playing Off-Broadway.
The combination of puppets and actors may make Avenue Q look a little like a children's show, but songs such as "The Internet is for Porn" and "If You Were Gay" point to a very adult sensibility. Clever jokes about everything from racism to the difficulty of finding your purpose in life make this contemporary musical comedy a favorite among twenty- and thirtysomethings. But just about anyone who has ever made the transition to adulthood (and, preferably, has also seen Sesame Street) can relate to both the people and the puppets of Avenue Q.
