Mature Monsters

Don't be fooled by the cute and colorful puppets. With profanity-laced songs such as “It Sucks to Be Me” and “Everyone's a Little Bit Racist,” Avenue Q is best for a night when the kids are with a babysitter. A cast of humans, puppets, and puppeteers gives us a tongue-in-cheek look at what it's like to come of age in New York City, and illustrates everything that's awful about being an adult. It's like having a couple drinks with the characters of Sesame Street and hearing what they really think about life –except that instead of Big Bird and Elmo you'll be talking with Rod the Republican and Lucy the Slut. With three Tony awards for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, you'll be humming its songs for days. Just make sure not to sing “The Internet is for Porn” when you're in front of your children.

Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Jan. 12, 2013
