The Internet is for...socializing? The Bad Idea Bears have cut back on drinking? And what happened to my girlfriend who lives in Canada? This isn't the foul-mouthed "Avenue Q" that you know, love, and can't sing in most public places. Rather, this is "Avenue Q" School Edition, a family-friendly (or at least, friendlier) version of the Tony-winning, dirty-minded puppet musical. This PG-13-style reimagining of "Avenue Q" cuts back on the swearing, the drinking, the drug use, the porn watching, and the puppet screwing, and somehow has enough story left for a production that still packs in lots of laughs and harsh truths about the post-grad life.
This amended "Avenue Q" plays in the Ensemble Theatre of the School of the Arts (45 Prince St.) from Friday, April 19, through April 28, with matinee and evening performances. Tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $5 for children ages 2 through 6. Tickets can be ordered through rcsdk12.org/sota, where you can also see the full performance schedule.
