A coming-of-age parable, it addresses and satirizes the issues and anxieties faced when becoming an adult. This PG13 version features the same songs/storyline and lots of puppets, just slightly revised to be PG13 instead of R.
Because the original Avenue Q has some content elements that gave it an R rating, MTI worked with the Avenue Q authors to create an adaptation that maintains the dramatic (and comedic) intention and integrity of the piece, while editing it to make it more appropriate all audiences.
