Avenue Q @ The Rotunda on Walnut Tonight through Sunday

avenue qProject Arts brings a “school edition” of the left-of-center cult puppet-musical to The Rotunda (4014 Walnut Street) for shows tonight @ 7:00, Friday & Saturday @ 8:00, and Sunday @ 3:00.

“School edition”–of which they recently did a rendition of Rent–means that the material is softened just enough so as not to be wildly inappropriate for the teens participating in their theater education program.

According to Project Arts–“Although this version has been edited to take out some of the racier elements, the irreverence and the content remain mostly intact. We also choose theater pieces that incorporates issues of the lives of real teens such as gender, class, drink-ing, diversity, LGBT issues, etc.”

Avenue Q, was created by Robert Lopez, co-creater of Book Of Mormon. If you haven’t seen it, think Sesame Street but hilariously inappropriate (again, in this instance, just appropriate enough for teens to participate, but not much more!).

Tickets are $15.00 and the cause is good. Project Arts operates as an after-school program offering a variety of theater training services to local youth at no charge. For tickets, visit http://projectartsavenueqschooledition.bpt.me/
