West Coasters no longer have to jet all the way to the Big Apple to watch hot young gay men fisting puppets on stage. Avenue Q is now out on the Las Vegas strip, playing at the newly christened Wynn Casino. It’s Sesame Street but queerer than queer. We’re talking Bert and Ernie gay. Hey, it’s a musical with positive messages of isolation, love, and acceptance and, most importantly, show tunes!
Don’t let the innocent-looking puppets fool you into thinking this is an all ages show. Topics include “sex, drinking, and surfing the web for porn.” We know, we know, itâ€™s all old hat to you but did we mention it stars an all puppet cast? Puppets, damnit! We may have just let out our secret plushie fetishâ€¦
Tickets range from $88-$99. In Vegas, thatâ€™s about thirty seconds at the craps table, so itâ€™s a bargain. Even better, when was the last time you had a date that was no strings attached?
