Puppet Construction and Handling Support
AVENIDA Q is a Sesame Street in steroids, which combines Muppets aesthetics with such an adult language that it only works because life is a long march of boredom towards the grave. Oh, and because the songs are great. The story follows LUÍS, a recent graduate full of hope, PAULA (the sow), FÉLIX (the gay in the closet) and TREKKIE (the pervert) among others. Together, they try to find a purpose in life and talk about the existential themes that affect us all, in an innovative show that changed Broadway and made viewers passionate.
