Avenue Q Joins the Fray With Clinton and Trump Puppet Debate

Video   Avenue Q Joins the Fray With Clinton and Trump Puppet Debate
“I’m with fur!” and “Make puppets great again!” were the candidates’ rallying cries.

On the day of the first Presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, Avenue Q rolled out their puppet version of the candidates for a town hall style debate at New World Stages.

The candidates hit all of the hot button topics and took questions from the audience — not surprisingly Trekkie Monster had a question about how to permanently delete the contents of a computer hard drive.

The now-classic show began its life Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre where it ran for 72 performances. It moved to Broadway and was the 2004 Tony winner for Best musical. After a six-year run, it transitioned back Off-Broadway to New World stages, where it still plays today. Music and lyrics are by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book is by Jeff Whitty.
