Overview

Avenue Q, the thoroughly entertaining and outrageous new hit musical, is the freshest breeze to blow down the Great White Way in too many seasons. Disguised as a wry, adult send-up of Sesame Street -- complete with furry, singing puppets and affirmative life lessons -- Avenue Q brings clear-eyed humor and warmth to the denizens who live on the street "when you can't afford to live anywhere else." Composers Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx and librettist Jeff Whitty aim their subversively realistic parable directly at struggling twenty-somethings, a demographic traditionally overlooked on Broadway. Thorny themes such as racism, sexuality, relationships, the high cost of living, and finding one's purpose in life are handled with sensitivity, wit, and a delicious streak of vulgarity. A vibrantly talented cast of newcomers, led by the incredibly versatile John Tartaglia and Stephanie D'Abruzzo, shine on the hilarious showstoppers, "It Sucks to Be Me," "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," "If You Were Gay" and "The Internet is for Porn." Listen to this terrific original cast recording, produced by Jay David Saks, and it'll always be a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
