Avenue Q is a Broadway musical. It opened off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in March 2003 (where it won that season’s Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical), and it has been on Broadway at the Golden Theatre since July 31, 2003. It has risque songs and all but three characters are portrayed by puppets. It won the 2004 Tony Award for Best Musical as well as Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Book of a Musical, defeating the much bigger-scale musical of the season, Wicked.The show is largely inspired by (and in the style of) PBS’s Sesame Street, with several characters that are recognizably parodies of classic Muppet characters. For example, the roommates Rod and Nicky are clearly adult versions of Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie, and Trekkie Monster seems to be based on Cookie Monster. Likewise, many of Avenue Q’s musical numbers are in a style associated with classic Sesame Street songs.
