Avenue Q's puppet cleavage causes concern in Colorado

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — Puppet cleavage has been ruled out for advertising posters in Colorado Springs bus shelters. Lamar Advertising rejected posters for a touring production of the Broadway show "Avenue Q" because they show the cleavage of a fuzzy pink puppet. Lamar account executive Jeff Moore says the company takes a conservative approach in Colorado Springs. The city is known for its political conservatism, and some conservative Christian groups have headquarters in the city, including the now infamous Focus on The Family. The poster has been replaced by one showing the face of another puppet. "Avenue Q" is a Tony-winning musical about twentysomething New Yorkers, both human and puppets, searching for life and love.
