Critics’ Reviews

The smartest, most perverse puppet show in town.

Review by Nancy Sidewater from Entertainment Weekly

A thoroughly infectious musical that qualifies as a serious blessing.

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, who supplied the concept, music and lyrics of Avenue Q, took a kiddie show—inspirational values and all—and roughly turned it inside out. It still offers moral values but gives them a sweet, very funny but cheerfully satiric twist. It is, of necessity, cartoonish but never ill-tempered… This young-at-heart show is good dirty fun.

Review by Clive Barnes from The New York Post

The show has a sassy charm, a quirky sense of humor that successfully negotiates two very different styles that take these Muppet-style creatures much further than Jim Henson ever went.

Review by Michael Kuchwara from The Associated Press

The most cleverly audacious stage musical I have ever seen… The entire production team deserves the highest praise for turning Avenue Q into something far greater than simple parody. With its compelling characters and simple truths, Avenue Q is the most human of comedies.
