The show's format is a parody of PBS's Sesame Street.
Avenue Q's cast consists of three human characters and eleven puppet characters who interact as if human, Sesame Street-style.
The show was directed by Jason Moore with puppets designed and built by original cast member Rick Lyon.
Avenue Q has received many favorable reviews for its approach on topics like racism, homosexuality, and Internet pornography.
The show first opened in 2003 at the Vineyard Theatre co-produced by the Vineyard Theatre and The New Group.
In July of that same year the show moved to the John Golden Theatre on Broadway.
The show is set on a fictional street in an "outer-outer borough" of New York City. His new neighbors are Kate Monster, a kindergarten assistant teacher; Rod, an anal-retentive Republican banker; Nicky, Rod's slacker roommate; Brian, an aspiring comedian recently laid off from his day job; Christmas Eve, Brian's Japanese fiancée and a therapist with no clients; Trekkie Monster, a surly recluse who surfs the Internet all day in search of porn; and Gary Coleman, the building superintendent.They and the neighbors agree that racism is an adult reality ("Everyone's a Little Bit Racist"). The Bad Idea Bears, two charming troublemakers, convince him to spend it on beer. Thistletwat assigns Kate to teach the next morning's kindergarten class, her first solo teaching opportunity.She decides that her lesson will be about the Internet and all its educational attributes, but Trekkie Monster and the neighbors explain another reality of adulthood: Lots of adults, even "normal people", use it to find pornography ("The Internet is for Porn"). His song selections are puzzling, making her wonder what message he is trying to send, but eventually, she decides that he must like her ("Mixtape").Princeton finds a lucky penny and longs to discover his purpose in life ("Purpose").Kate dreams of starting a "Monstersori" school for young "people of fur".
(The production officially disclaims any connection with either Sesame Workshop or The Jim Henson Company.) All of the characters (puppet and human) are young adults who face real-world problems with uncertain solutions, as opposed to the simplistic problems and invariably happy resolutions encountered by characters on children's television programming.
