We’re going to fill you in on the distant future of Broadway. In 20 years, there’s going to be a hilarious spoof of Hannah Montana with the potty-mouthed pop star hiding her double life as a high-priced hooker. It’ll be a hit. How do we know? Because Avenue Q paved the way. The Tony Award winner for Best Musical opened in 2003, telling stories of puppets that looked a lot like the characters you grew up with on Sesame Street. It said everything you and your dope-smoking friends would talk about in cloudy college dorm rooms — how Cookie Monster was really just a munchie-hungry stoner and Bert wanted more than just a bromance with half-witted Ernie. Songs like “If You Were Gay,” “The Internet is For Porn,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist” are sure to never to come out of Elmo’s mouth, but they’ll leave you tickled, nonetheless. —Greg Hambrick
