This musical comedy features puppets and human actors. It was the winner of Best Musical, Book, and Score at the 2004 Tony Award.
The principal cast includes four puppeteers, ala Sesame Street, and three human actors. The puppet characters, Princeton, Kate, Nicky, and others, are played by the unconcealed puppeteers as the costumed human actors interact with the puppets.
The show’s format is a parody of Sesame Street, but its content is adult-oriented, critically praised for its approach to themes of racism, homosexuality and internet pornography.
