Seattle Theatre Group unveiled the (apparently) most controversial banner to date on Monday (May 19th) at 1:00PM on the east facing exterior of The Paramount Theatre. The banner features Lucy, star of Broadway’s Avenue Q, in all her provocative glory.
This is the first billboard that’s made me blush,” says STG Executive Director Josh LaBelle.

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. AVENUE Q has not been authorized or approved by The Jim Henson Company or Sesame Workshop, which have no responsibility for its content.
