Avenue Q

The long-running Broadway hit Avenue Q—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-colour, 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 sidesplitting: 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.

Lower Ossington Theatre

When Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues of Broadway World paid a visit to Lower Ossington Theatre’s production of RENT, she was struck by many things—the dynamite performances and powerhouse vocals, the costumes, the deceptively simple staging—but the space itself might have taken the cake. An intimate venue can make an experience immersive, and Lower Ossington Theatre’s three performance spaces possess that quality in spades. Goldfield Rodrigues noted how instead of a stage, the theatre kept audiences and performers on the same plane—the show in an open space at the front with individual chairs facing it—helping viewers feel as though they were in the same world as the characters and dispelling the worry that the performers might be invading giants.
