The Deal

Avenue Q

The long-running Broadway hit [_Avenue Q_](http://www.avenueq.com)—winner of the Tony triple crown for Best Musical, Book, and Score in 2004—packs its rollicking musical with irreverent wit and puppets that say the darndest things. A cross-species mix of puppets and humans centers on Princeton, a well-meaning recent college grad who moves to New York City with Big Apple-sized dreams and gets a much needed real-world education from his neighbors. Along the way, bouncy songs and sassy dialogue delve into topical issues such as politics and bedroom mores. The off-color, mature, and perversely funny production is warm, endearing, and more heart-rending than a sock-puppet production of _King Lear_. Key to both the tear-jerking and side-splitting: the score, written by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, which captures the cheery feel of a children's television show while stuffing in taboo-skewering lyrics. Tunes such as "I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today" and "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist" don't skimp on the jokes, but not every song drips with the same acerbic wit. Ballads, including the wistful "I Wish I Could Go Back to College", stand out for their genuine emotion, filling _Avenue Q_ with a resonance that lurks just beneath its fuzzy, politically incorrect exterior. The musical is intended for mature audiences only, or parents training their children for a life of detention.
