Full puppet nudity: Avenue Q 

Few puppet shows feature the following advisory: "Not appropriate for children due to language and adult content such as full puppet nudity." Full puppet nudity. Sexy.

But Avenue Q, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, isn't all puppet porn. The story follows a recent college grad named Princeton who moves to New York City and shacks up in a sleazy neighborhood on Avenue Q. Princeton soon befriends his neighbors--an out-of-work comedian named Brian and his unemployed therapist fiancee Christmas Eve, the Internet addict Trekkie Monster, and Gary Coleman, an ex-child star turned building superintendant. Though Princeton faces a few stumbles while trying to make it on his own in the big city--accompanied by musical numbers like "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist"--with the help of his pals, he eventually learns that growing up ain't half bad.

On Monday, Feb. 8, through Wednesday, Feb. 10, Avenue Q will take over the Morrison Center as a part of the Broadway in Boise season. So, if you thought you'd outgrown your puppet phase, you'd best think again. Wokka, wokka, wokka.

Monday, Feb. 8-Wednesday, Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m., $28-$48, Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, 208-426-1110, idahotickets.com.
