Avenue Q's Muppets Still Have a Lesson or Two For Adults

Avenue Q's Muppets Still Have a Lesson or Two For Adults

The muppets of Sesame Street have taught several generations of TV-watching children how to count, share and take pride in themselves. If only there were muppets to help us learn how to handle complicated adult situations like racism, one-night stands and wanting to strangle the people you love.

That's where Avenue Q comes in.

The 2003 Off-Broadway show is now a decade old and touring around the U.S., but its lovable cast of muppets (like porn-addicted Trekkie Monster and closeted gay Republican, Rod) keep the show as heartwarming as ever. And its earnest and catchy tunes like "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist" and "There's A Fine, Fine Line" remain just as fresh and relatable now as they were when they premiered ten years ago.

Here TV host Josh Rosenzweig recently revisited Avenue Q himself. You can watch his review of the play in the video below.

If you've already been to Avenue Q, you might want to take a second look at the irreverently funny play. And if you've never been, you should probably plan a trip — after all, you don't want to let another 10 years go by without seeing one of the most popular (and hilarious) modern musicals of all time, do you?
