Here come the naughty puppets!

When the ribald puppet musical Avenue Q won the best musical Tony Award in 2004 (one of three the show won that night), those of us outside New York got excited at the prospect of the national tour.

But that tour didn’t happen. Producers of Avenue Q decided — with all the wisdom producers can muster — that the show would be better off not touring and instead opening up shop in everyone’s favorite Sin City, Las Vegas.

Well, that production, which christened the 1,200-seat Broadway Theatre at the Wynn resort, only lasted about eight months and closed in May of last year.

So now this merry (and naughty) spoof of “Sesame Street,” currently in its fourth year on Broadway, is hitting the road and opens its national tour Aug. 7 at San Francisco’s Orpheum Theatre as the final show in the current Best of Broadway season.

The show runs through Sept. 2, and tickets go on sale in June. Visit www.shnsf.com for information.

Here’s a taste of the adult pleasures (defintiely PG-13 at least) of Avenue Q: “The Internet is for Porn.”
