The long-running Broadway hit Avenue Q, winner of the Tony triple crown for Best Musical, Book, and Score in 2004, sheds its New York felt to engross San Antonio in a rollicking musical packed with irreverent wit and puppets that say the darndest things. The tale of a recent college grad discovering love and his life's purpose in a colorful neighborhood of fabricated, fuzzy neighbors, Avenue Q entertains and enlightens with bouncy songs, sassy dialogue, and topical issues such as politics and bedroom mores. The musical is intended for mature audiences only, or parents training their children for a life of detention.
An Egyptian art-deco style anchors the Cameo Theatre, luring wandering eyes with polychrome accents, gilt columns, and a sphinx that permits entry only after guests solve a riddle. A surviving artifact of the 1940s, the theater first opened as a home for vaudeville acts and movies but has since filled its stage with a diverse roster of legendary performers from B.B. King to Metallica, and it now regularly hosts theatrical productions.
