Avenue Q @ the OCPAC

Avenue Q @ the OCPAC

The Tony Award-winning musical Avenue Q makes a stop at the Orange County Performing Arts Center for a 12-day run. The story behind Avenue Q is a familiar one: Youthful dreams of making it big in New York City with a tiny bank account. In the opening act, we�re immediately introduced to an apartment-hunting college grad named Princeton. He contemplates life, his direction, his purpose�and then breaks into a musical number titled �What Do You Do With a BA in English?� But it�s the way the story is told that�s truly notable: Puppets. Irreverent, sassy puppets with names such as Mrs. Thistletwat and Lucy the Slut. The show was meant to be an obvious homage to PBS� long-running children�s program Sesame Street, with a few more topics thrown in: homosexuality (see: �If You Were Gay�), racism (�Everyone�s a Little Bit Racist�) and pornography (�The Internet Is for Porn�). Brought to you by N, C and the number 17. Avenue Q runs through April 12, use promotion code 8779 for 25% off select performances. See ocpac.org for more info.
