Avenue Q brings puppets back to the forefront

As a lifetime fan of musicals, I was unsure how I would feel about the unconventional Avenue Q.

But I needn’t have worried as the show was as un-PC as it was hilarious.

Puppets that swear, have sex, and discuss all manner of subjects from racism to porn, Avenue Q was unlike anything I had ever seen before.

It was the first time the show had come to the Sunderland Empire, and the audience clearly enjoyed the shock-factor of the production, with songs like Everyone’s A Little Bit Racist.

The potty mouthed puppets were hilarious from start to finish, including the fantastic Lucie-Mae Sumner who voices Katy Monster and Lucy.

A great storyline that will have you thinking about your own life as well as laughing out loud, this is a fantastic, rude and controversial show.

Avenue Q is right up my street.
