Avenue Q's main character, Princeton, has just graduated from college with a B.A. in English. He moves into an apartment in the only neighborhood he can afford, on Avenue Q, where his superintendent is actor Gary Coleman. There, he and his neighbors cope with the struggles of real life, learning that you cannot necessarily count on things turning out as you would like.
Avenue Q is largely inspired by PBS's Sesame Street, with several characters that are recognizably parodies of classic Muppet characters. For example, the roommates Rod and Nicky are clearly adult versions of Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie and Trekkie Monster seems to be based on Cookie Monster. Likewise, many of Avenue Q's musical numbers are in a style associated with classic Sesame Street songs.
