Broadway's 2004 Tony Award winner for Best Musical continues its hilarious, puppet-filled run Off-Broadway at New World Stages. More…
This grown-up musical comedy stars a cast of humans and puppets, and tells the timeless story of a bright-eyed college grad named Princeton. When he arrives in the city with big dreams and a tiny bank account, he has to move into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There he meets Kate (the girl next door), Lucy (the slut), Rod (the Republican), Trekkie (the pervert), superintendent Gary Coleman (yes, that Gary Coleman) and other new friends. Together, they struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
See it if to see what this show is all about, I'd never seen it and that is why I went. I was impressed by the performers, Gizel Jimenez in particular
Don't see it if lots of references (Gary Coleman?) really dated. Not that funny, although may have been groundbreaking at the time. But glad I saw it.
See it if you're into potty mouth muppets which is really the novelty of the show. Maybe it's "clever" but only in a "shock value" way.
Don't see it if you expect more for shows than trying to be outrageous and get cheap laughs by being foul mouthed instead of smart and witty.
See it if you want to laugh at a bunch of overused unoriginal jokes. Unique and original idea, definitely not like any other shows.
Don't see it if you expect it to live up to the hype. Way overrated.
See it if It hasn't been that many years, but this show is feeling dated. If it weren't for Sesame Street-esque puppets, it wouldn't be that funny.
Don't see it if You want 3 dimensional characters or a plot or complexity of themes. But for broad parody, it's fine.
See it if you want to delight in raunchy cleverness.
Don't see it if you're looking for compelling staging; characters would frequently not face the audience.
See it if you like adult puppet shows, don't mind hearing raunchy dialogue spoken by puppets, you were a fan of Sesame St. & you're a recent univ grad
Don't see it if raunchy dialogue spoken by puppets is not your thing, you don't like musicals about recent college grads having tough times, puppets bore u.
See it if If you're familiar with Sesame Street and find using puppets as a form of stand-up comedy, you'll love this. I was bored much of the time.
Don't see it if If unfamiliar with Sesame St, much of the show will mean little to nothing. If puppets doing sex acts aren't funny, even if not offensive -
See it if you enjoy a new type of show. Great for kids. If you love puppets.
Don't see it if you expect great music, great staging but want an entertaining evening, see it. Don't love puppets - miss this show.
See it if You like sketch, ethnic, college humor, great original puppetry. Twenty somethings, raised on Sesame Street.
Don't see it if you expect the sparkling, clever show it was once. Dated, over-the-top dirty, sophmoric, wears thin and it doesn't end ...
See it if I love the soundtrack, but the show is showing its age and Off-Broadway-ness. Honestly, it might be time to retire the show.
Don't see it if If you don't like bad language or puppet sex, probably not the show for you.
See it if the songs are cute and some of the jokes are pretty funny.
Don't see it if I thought the story was a bit boring - the songs were funny enough, but the story itself was a typical romance without much else to offer
See it if They had such a good idea but they didn't take it far enough. It could have gone so much further over the top.
Don't see it if It felt like someone was concerned it wouldn't be "family friendly" and cleaned up what could have been hysterical.
See it if You are a die hard fan of musicals - this one has good energy, show tune music, and a good cast. Also good for people who like muppets.
Don't see it if You might find a cast wearing hand puppet muppets and singing through them a bit too silly, especially as they work through gay issues.
See it if You don't feel guilty laughing at non-PC jokes, you want an approachable show, you miss the late 90s/early 2000s
Don't see it if You are with your kids or grandparents, you have not-so-fond memories of Sesame Street, you're over cliches
