One can live for a very long time and never fully recover from the pleasure of having heard a big fuzzy puppet monster singing about internet porn. And not just because The Internet is for Porn is, like much of the rest of Avenue Qs score, so dang catchy. But because this show the now-famous coming-of-age parable wrapped around a satire of kiddie shows and told in song by puppets and live actors is such fun to watch.
Phoenix Theatres Little Theatre production features some local talent, who were trained to puppeteer by founding members of Avenue Qs original cast. No one had to train them to sing or perform, and so such gems as It Sucks to Be Me and Im Not Wearing Underwear Today will certainly sparkle in this hometown Equity version.
Wednesdays-Sundays; Tue., March 8. Starts: Feb. 23. Continues through March 20, 2011
