'Avenue Q' at Paramount Theatre

Avenue Q is Sesame Street for adults: a puppet musical set in an "outer borough of New York," whose residents get drunk, have sex, fall for Scientology, and mourn their useless college diplomas. Song titles include "I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today," "The Internet Is for Porn," and "It Sucks to Be Me." Avenue Q opened in a 120-seat, off-Broadway theater in 2003 and surprised everyone by becoming a magnet for Tony and Drama Desk awards. (Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St, 292-2787. 1 and 6:30 pm, $25–$70. Through June 22.) BRENDAN KILEY

I went to this last night and it would have been much better had the person running the sound board not had a desire to distort 60% of the fucking songs so you could not hear what the fuck they were singing most of the time.

How many stranger staffers got a BA in English?

Scary. This is the first (and probably last) time I've followed the "Stranger Suggests" advice. Excellent notion!

I'm going as soon as I can figure out which night this week is the least suck-shit time for me to go.
