Avenue Q-age appropriate

I'm thinking of taking my two teenagers to this show. How inappropriate is it? I'm sure they've seen and heard it all before, but will we be embarrassed sitting together watching it?

How can we answer if we don't know you??? :) I took my godson when he was 13-14. I warned his Mother and she thought it was fine. We all went together and we enjoyed it but we're not you. I wonder if the teens will be embarrassed? Have you asked them?

Two puppets have $ex with the help of a puppeteer. under a blanket. I have no idea if this will embarrass you or not...how old are your teens?

Review video clips at http://www.avenueq.com/video.html on show's website. If you're comfortable with what you see, invite your kids to do the same. My teenage sons are in full support; my teenage daughter is suprisingly still voting for next to normal-- but not b/c she's uncomforatable with Ave. Q's content. If you decide on Avenue Q, BroadwayBox discounts were just introduced today-- $20 off all tickets excluding Saturday night performances through December 23rd.

Would you let your kids watch Saturday Night Live.

They watch SNL weekly. That's what I thought, we'll get tickets. Thanks.

Every parent sets different standards for their children. Every child is different. Here are some of the issues that are dealt with in Avenue Q:

Internet Pornography.

Feelings of inadequacy and uselessness

Racism

Sex

I took my 14 YO daughter - a sassy Brooklyn girl and she loved it. You will be too busy laughing to be embarrassed. Lastly, everything is done in such a high spirit of fun. But, appropriate for you and/or your teens? That is a call that only you can make.
