Avenue Q

When: June 2-25 2017

The timing is perfect—with perhaps just a smidge of schadenfreude. Just as the latest horde of college graduates hits the streets in pursuit of dream careers, even higher education, or simply any viable gig to keep voracious student loans at bay, Raleigh Little Theatre revives the cheery (and only slightly nihilistic) Tony Award-winning musical from 2003 about the present-day quandaries of becoming an adult. The seven puppet characters and three humans in this addled Sesame Street update uncover contemporary truths in songs like "The Internet Is for Porn" and "Everybody's Just a Little Bit Racist" as twentysomethings trying to reconcile lifelong dreams with starker socioeconomic realities. Jesse Gephart directs. —Byron Woods

Price: $15-$28
