Censored: Broadway In Colorado Springs Billboard Featuring AVENUE Q Resident Denied by Lamar Outdoor

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - February 12, 2010) - AVENUE Q is going to be hitting the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs March 16 & 17, and word on the street is that the outdoor bus shelters they planned to display are simply too scandalous.

Broadway In Colorado Springs' most controversial outdoor billboard to date would have featured Lucy The Slut, a resident on of Avenue Q, in all her provocative glory.

AVENUE Q opens at the Pikes Peak Center March 16 for two performances. AVENUE Q is Broadway's smash-hit 2004 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. A hilarious show full of heart and hummable tunes, AVENUE Q, is about trying to make it in NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Called "one of the funniest shows you're ever likely to see" by Entertainment Weekly, AVENUE Q features a cast of people and puppets who tell the story in a smart, risqué and downright entertaining way. The New Yorker calls it "SUBVERSIVE and UPROARIOUS!" Adult humor and language, comic vulgarities, sexual content and full puppet nudity. Not recommended for children.
