Avenue Q: Like Sesame Street, For Adults
You've graduated college. You've moved to a crappy apartment. You don't have a job, and you don't have friends. Sound familiar?Avenue Q, a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical with the looks of Sesame Street and the perversity of Team America, reassures its audience that the Real World may be a scary place at first, but as long as you surround yourself with friends, you'll do just fine.
With songs like "What Do You Do with a B.A. in English," "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist" and "I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today," it's hard not to remember your days as a post-grad newb-in-the-city. Both charming and a little disturbing, Avenue Q will make a fan out of any musical hater.
Avenue Q is only in town for five days, Feb. 10-15 at the Warner Theater. [Warner Theatre]
