The idea of an adult puppet show kind of creeped me out. Then I saw Avenue Q. It’s an irreverent, raunchy and touching story of young adult Sesame Street-inspired characters who find out they aren’t so special as they navigate the adult world of job-hunting, searching for affordable apartments and discovering their purpose in life.

The show also runs at Conant Performing Arts Center at Oglethorpe University June 12-July 12. Tickets start at $30.
