The sometimes naughty but always endearing modern classic Avenue Q is the 11th season closer for Kalamazoo's Farmers Alley Theatre, running July 19-Aug 11. An innovative adult musical with puppets, it won Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score, says director Rob Weiner. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, Weiner and actors Cat Greenfield (Kate Monster/Lucy the Slut) and Teresa Attridge (Christmas Eve) talk about their characters and the way the show invites the audience to become fully involved in the complicated lives of the characters living on Avenue Q.
