Though they may look innocent, the puppets from Avenue Q have been causing a story with their cheeky touring show.

The award-winning musical is running at the High Street West venue until tonight.

It tells the story of Princeton who comes to New York City to follow his dreams and ends up living on Avenue Q alongside some quirky characters.

Avenue Q first opened Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2003, before transferring to Broadway later that year where it won three Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.

In 2006 it transferred to the West End, produced by Cameron Mackintosh, where it ran for five years before touring the UK.
