Bring Your Crew to Avenue Q

We all watched Sesame Street, right? I grew up watching puppets solve problems, teach new letters and numbers, and singing songs about friendship, sharing and feelings. Avenue Q is a  lot like Sesame Street, except puppets solve much more adult problems, learn about racism, and sing songs about the dark side of the internet. And Gary Coleman lives there too.

It was amazing to see a cast of 6 people and a plethora of puppets that included humans, monsters and bad idea bears bring the Civic Theatre stage to life. This three-time Tony award-winning musical definitely earns all of its accolades. My husband and I laughed through the entire performance, and I don’t think I saw a single person sleeping. It was a great date night as long as you’re not taking someone out who is easily offended. If you get a chance to head downtown to see it I would 100% recommend it as long as you leave your little monsters at home.

Avenue Q, presented by Broadway San Diego, is playing at the San Diego Civic Theatre through July 11th. For tickets and show times, please see the Broadway San Diego website.

About Katie S.

I’m a 25-year old arts and culture nut who loves animals, grammar, live music, farmer’s markets, hysterically bad movies, anything that smells like pumpkin, shoes and Chipotle.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego day?

I’d start my day with a breakfast burrito and a morning run on the beach at Fiesta Island with my dog.  Then I’d bring a picnic lunch to the Japanese Friendship Garden, and end my day rocking out at a concert.

If you were invisible, where would you go?

The Chargers locker room.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

I love shopping at the kitschy stores in Hillcrest and finding great deals at the outlet malls. Shopping is an outdoor activity, right?

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

I’m a vegetarian, so I’d have to say veggie burgers and beer. My favorite is the veggie burgers at the Wild Note Café that are made fresh with hummus.

Latest music purchases for my iPod/MP3 player are…



  • Easy Star All-Stars “With A Little Help From My Friends”



  • Fleet Foxes “White Winter Hymnal”



  • Franz Ferdinand “Ulysses”



  • DeVotchka “How It Ends”
