BWW Reviews: SoLuna's AVENUE QBWW Reviews: SoLuna's AVENUE Q
by Melissa Giordano - Jan 22, 2015

Particularly over the past several years, the Tony winning musical Avenue Q has become a favorite show of mine. It's hilarious, relatable, and an original American production particularly with the use of puppetry which is a fascinating skill to watch.

BWW Reviews: AVENUE Q Wins Over Sioux FallsBWW Reviews: AVENUE Q Wins Over Sioux Falls
by Ellie Livingston - Jan 21, 2015

"What do you do with a BA in English? What is my life going to be? Four years of college and plenty of knowledge has earned me this useless degree.

These relatable and extremely insightful lyrics are the first lines in the musical Avenue Q, which can now be seen at The Sioux Empire Community Theatre in downtown Sioux Falls, and it is sung by a puppet. Throughout the show I was struck with just how relatable these puppets were. I am certain that it is because of the talent of the puppeteers. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2015

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.
