Head to "Avenue Q"!

Whether you're a newbie or have already taken a stroll down Avenue Q, it's back in town for a short-run at the Pantages and I highly recommend you head out and see it while it's here!

While this show features puppets and puppeteers, this is a"Sesame Street for Adults" featuring a different set of life's ABC's and poking fun of life After college and grow(ing)-up life in general.  From jokes about finding purpose to the "purpose" of the Internet to understanding what it means to give and to love, the show features as much laughter about the subjects they present as to the truth to them.  The show also sings on about  valuable lessons such as "Everybody's a Little Bit Racist" (sometimes!) and the valuable one-sided lesson of "Schadenfreude" in general.

For those who have seen the show and are thinking of returning for more, it's a particular treat to hear a few of the jokes updated with the most present-day relevance.  And I know I don't need to elaborate on how hilariously funny, witty, and musical the show is.  Whether newbie or not, however, the music and performances will leave you wondering "What Do You Do with a B.A. in English?" whether or not you have one.
