New World Stages , Hell's Kitchen Until Saturday December 31 2016

After many years, the sassy and clever puppet musical doesn’t show its age. Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx’s deft Sesame Street–esque novelty tunes about porn and racism still earn their laughs. Avenue Q remains a sly and winning piece of metamusical tomfoolery.

Running time: 2hrs 15mins. One intermission.

Avenue Q is hilarious!  I had reservations about seeing a play with puppets, but you quickly see the puppets as human.  This is a real life story of a recent college grad who thinks upon graduation he will live the "American Dream", but quickly realizes that real life is difficult.  This play will resonate with everyone who transitioned from child to adult and being an adult hit them like a brick in the face.

I've seen 3 musicals in my entire life! Avenue Q is my second favorite. At first, I told myself-"What the hell did I get myself into?" Puppets floating around on stage with real humans, real humans interacting with the puppets, but not with the humans holding the puppets; I was confused. I was expecting to see a set with puppets that pop in and out and the actors would do most of the acting. Nope. nah. naw. Not the case. It was a full on interaction-humans with puppets, ON STAGE - singing and dancing! Overall - what made the show so great was all the cussing and the real life shit they talk about.
