You aren't likely to find a more solid, satisfying and well-produced show in Vancouver this holiday season. "Avenue Q" at The Arts Club on Granville Island is hilarious and dirty and sentimental. It's a gentle story about young adults who must find their ways after college. Imagine "Sesame Street" with frank discussions of sex and depression and you get an idea of how the show operates.
Original Kids Theatre Company Alumni are presenting the first local production of the Tony Award-winning smash hit Avenue Q later this month. The Canadian troupe has learned all the right tricks with life-size replicas of the puppets used on Broadway, so I took my interview to the true stars of the show -- the puppets themselves!
