Avenue Q is an American musical in two acts, conceived by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, who wrote the music and lyrics. The book was written by Jeff Whitty and the show was directed by Jason Moore. Avenue Q is an autobiographical and biographical coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood. Its characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents, and by children's television programs such as PBS's Sesame Street, that they were special and could do anything but as adults, they have discovered to their surprise and dismay that in the real world their options are limited, and they are no more special than anyone else. The musical is notable for the use of puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers, alongside human actors.
