Onstage: Avenue Q

“Puppet nudity. Puppet sexual situations. Strong puppet language.” Don’t let the cute-looking characters and a resemblance to Muppets and Sesame Street fool you: Avenue Q is an entirely different neighborhood that Showbiz Players are bringing to Covington’s Carnegie Center.

The laugh-out-loud musical was an unexpected Tony Award winner (best musical, score and book) in 2004. It’s about a college grad named Princeton who moves to a shabby New York neighborhood where his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. Showbiz Players is a community theater that has worked all over town. This is their first production at their new home, the Carnegie’s Otto M. Budig Theatre. The intimate space is a good match for this very funny — and raunchy — show that’s “part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.” Through June 10. $18.50-$20.50. 1028 Scott Blvd., Covington. 859-957-1840, thecarnegie.com.
