Full of racy puppets and boisterous songs, Avenue Q is a hilarious look at life in New York City, in a world populated by people and puppets. In its Broadway debut, Avenue Q scored the "Triple Crown" of Tony wins, grabbing honors for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. The lovable cast includes characters made of both flesh and felt: recent college grad Princeton, who moves to Avenue Q full of hope for the future, the girl/monster next door (Kate), and a colorful collection of neighbors who help Princeton discover his purpose in life.

I see theater fairly often in the Bay Area. Berkeley Rep., ACT, Theater Rhino, Eureka Theater, The Magic, the Black Repertory Theater, and others. "Slipping" at the New Conservatory Theater Center is as good as anything on those stages. The writing is astonishingly true to life and the acting is courageous. Go see it.
Alone, numb and friendless after the violent death of his father, high school senior Eli moves with his mom from San Francisco to a fresh start in Iowa. A new relationship with a boy at school exposes Eli again to the possibility of closeness and the danger of being swallowed by it.
"To me, the play is about reaching out. I had this really intense relationship for a long time, and that relationship—having someone love me and be there for me—was what sent me over the edge and really kind of crashed me out. The play is about that and the need to break that open in order to start to become healthy." --Daniel Talbott, Playwright
