Avenue Q cast
Boasting one of the most unique warnings in Broadway history, Avenue Q wants you to know that it is full of puppet sex — full-on puppet sex.

The debaucherous “triple crown” (that’s best musical, best book, and best score) Tony Award-winning musical spins PBS into XXX territory. The show follows puppet Princeton, a broke college graduate and his search for purpose. Each of Avenue Q’s 11 puppet characters is animated and voiced by actors in full view of the audience, making for a four-dimensional theatrical experience. Avenue Q is not just raunchy — it’s delightfully inappropriate. Want proof? Catch musical numbers “If You Were Gay,” “The Internet Is for Porn,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.”

Avenue Q will debut at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21 and will run through Sunday, Oct. 7 at the Hillberry Theatre; 4743 Cass Ave., Detroit; 313-577-2972; theatreaddanceatwayne.com; Tickets are $17-$28.
