A puppet from the Tony Award®-winning musical comedy Avenue Q.
First performed in March 2003, the show featured both human and puppet characters in a hilarious parody of Sesame Street. The puppets were either rod-controlled or performed with 'live-hands', a technique requiring a pair of puppeteers. These puppets were made and used in the Australian production in 2015 by Promotechnics, closely following the original character designs created by talented puppet master and creator of the original Broadway show, Rick Lyon.
Inspired by Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie, Nicky knows his roommate Rod has a secret and encourages him to open up with the song "If You Were Gay". Nicky is a live hand puppet wearing a red "NY" jumper with yellow T-shirt. The puppet is constructed from upholstery foam, plastic and cardboard, covered in Antron fleece. Also included is a dirty, patched version of Nicky's jumper from the second act of the show. It remains in excellent condition with its original storage bag.
