UMaine production offers powerful, disturbing drama

The power of live theater is undeniable; the stage allows for a visceral urgency that simply cannot be duplicated in any other medium. While disturbing and taboo subjects can be tackled by all forms of artistic expression, nothing captures them with the same level of immediacy that the theater does.

UMaine presents a grown-up puppet musical
ORONO - From childhood, I've had an affinity for puppets. There's a wonderful anarchy that puppets seem to inspire that can result in moments that are engaging and absurd at the same time. Throw in the element of music and the potential for joyful chaos is maximized. It's the chance to create work that tells a story in a very unique way.

'Avenue Q,' the musical by Robert Lopez, Jeff Marz and Jeff Whitty, is that sort of work. A production of the Tony-winning show is currently being mounted by the University of Maine's School of Performing Arts. The show is directed by Sandra Hardy and musically directed by Danny Williams; it is being performed in Hauck Auditorium and runs through Feb. 19.
