What to do in Oklahoma on May 17, 2013: See Pollard Theatre's "Avenue Q" in Guthrie

Avenue Q Guthrie, OK

Today’s featured event:

GUTHRIE – Catch the final weekend of the daring modern musical “Avenue Q” at 8 p.m. today and Saturday at the Pollard Theatre, 120 W Harrison.

“Avenue Q” is billed as a gut-bustingly hilarious modern musical focusing on a group of unique 20-somethings making their way in the big city, seeking their purpose in life. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children’s show – a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned. Winner of the Tony “Triple Crown” for best musical, best score and best book, “Avenue Q” is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart. Intended for adult audiences only, “Avenue Q” is called “Sesame Street meets South Park” and tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City, with big dreams and a tiny bank account.

The show contains strong language, adult humor and puppet sexuality, and theater-goers are cautioned, “if a show can offend you, this one will.”
