Avenue Q opens in San Francisco

As you can see on the poster, Avenue Q finally opens in San Francisco today! Originally conceived as a television series, the show was seen by a producer, who went on to guide it to the theater. It landed on Broadway, and won the theater’s biggest prizes — best musical, best original score and best book for a musical — in 2004.

It had a successful stint in Las Vegas and enjoyed success in London, where audiences, Lopez says, “found it a lot less risque than they thought it would be.” Yes, these are puppets who swear, have sex and deal with messy issues such as racism and unemployment. If you are in the Bay Area and haven't caught Avenue Q yet, it's certainly worth checking out!
