    Who knew lovable looking puppets could be a little bit dirty? Well, that’s what we have in a really funny musical called, “Avenue Q”  produced by Constellation Theatre in the District. Just so you know, the puppets are attached to the hands and arms of real people, but honestly, you can’t take your eyes off the crazy antics of the puppets. The story is  about a young college grad named Princeton, played to perfection by Matt Dewberry. He has dreams about making it big in New York City and arrives without a job, a place to live and very little money. He finds a shabby apartment on “Avenue Q”  where his neighbors are raunchy puppets.  Constellation vet Katy Carhuff plays Princeton’s girlfriend Kate Monster. This show is so much fun—no wonder it won Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book. Constellation did a great job with this show thanks to director Allison Arkell Stackman, musical director Jake Null and a wonderful ensemble cast. The show is playing at the Source Theatre at 1835 14th St. NW. For information and tickets, call 202-204-7741 and check the website at
