Great acting, Great staging, Hilarious

See it if you want to experience a play done right. I had previously seen Avenue Q, but still loved it. Amazing acting. Engaging.

Don't see it if you don't like inappropriate humor. There's a good amount in there :)

Great singing, Hilarious, Raunchy, Entertaining, Great acting

See it if you have a subversive sense of humor, enjoy musicals or can relate to the struggles of young college graduates.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy dark or dirty comedy, dislike musicals, or prefer a generally more wholesome night out.

The New York Times
October 22nd, 2009

"They may have no legs of their own, but darned if those fuzzy creatures aren’t still standing, long after more full-bodied competition has bitten the dust...And they remain surprisingly fresh (in all senses of the word), even for someone who, like me, has now spent many hours in their company."

The Wall Street Journal
November 13th, 2009

"The show remains both fresh and timely—I know plenty of twentysomethings who are having at least as much trouble getting work as did their older brothers and sisters—and its digs at political correctness are, if anything, even more pointed today. I enjoyed it every bit as much as when I first saw it on Broadway six years ago. So will you."

Variety
October 21st, 2009

"Of all the musicals hatched in the post-2000 age of irony, this cheeky satire of children’s television shows like “Sesame Street” has arguably remained the freshest and funniest. Returning to its Off Broadway origins, the 2004 Tony winner shows no discernible signs of downsizing and no loss of heart."

Theatermania

"The Tony Award-winning musical Avenue Q remains as sharp and funny at its new Off-Broadway home...Indeed, the show's clever score and book continue to delight, and director Jason Moore's production still sparkles."

Stage Buddy

"The real staying power of this uproarious show is demonstrated by how well it holds up year after year. I was lucky enough to see the show with the original Broadway cast, and now, seeing it again a decade later, I’m impressed by how well-written, funny, and relevant 'Avenue Q' still is…If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Avenue Q yet, you’re in for a treat. Aside from the debauchery, 'Avenue Q' actually has a lot of heart."

Backstage
October 21st, 2009

"The concept of puppets (operated by actors in full view of the audience) having romantic problems and bills to pay just like people not made of felt still raises guffaws. The new cast doesn't have quite the same degree of polish as the original, but..."Avenue Q" is still one of the hippest theatrical destinations in New York."

"Avenue Q is like Sesame Street for adults, it's great. Did you see it when it was on Broadway? No? That's okay, because this holds up. It's not too late, you should check it out."

Theatre is Easy
October 20th, 2009

"'Avenue Q' still makes me chuckle to the point of tears just as it did six years ago...It’s brilliant. Presenting this very adult story as an homage to children’s entertainment not only drives home the point that we all have to grow up at some point, but also provides unique storytelling opportunities. Although 'Avenue Q' is a well-oiled machine at this point, the cast is still having fun, the direction is tighter than ever and the music is still remarkably good."
