Overview

(Applause Libretto Library). Anyone who grew up watching Sesame Street on public television will quickly be able to identify the inspiration for Avenue Q . Most of the characters in the show are puppets, and the set depicts several tenements on a rundown street in New York City. Several characters are parodies of Sesame Street regulars: for example, the roommates Rod and Nicky are based on Bert and Ernie, while Trekkie Monster is based on Cookie Monster. However, these characters are in their twenties and thirties and face adult problems; despite the fuzzy faces, this is not a children's show. After a run lasting more than six years and 2,534 performances, the Broadway production of Avenue Q ranks in the top 25 longest running shows in Broadway history and continues to have productions run worldwide.

Funny stuff, and I liked how some songs were long and some were short but they just kept on coming. My favourite was "You Can be as Loud as the Hell You Want (When You're Making Love)" and the one that hit home most was the one about how everyone just wants to go back to college where things were simple but they can't because they're toooooo old.
