Avenue Q Wiki


Princeton is a 22 year old college graduate, with a B.A. in English. Princeton can be described as a wide-eyed, naive individual, who is open to taking on life's challenges, and always taking them on head first. Despite this, however, Princeton can get discouraged quite easily.

He much resembles Kingston Livingston III (and a bit of Guy Smiley) from Sesame Street.

Puppet Information[]

Type of Puppet[]

Princeton is a single-rod Puppet, which means if the puppeteer is right-handed, the right hand goes inside the puppet and controls the mouth. If they are left-handed, it is vice versa. The puppeteer's left hand holds the rod attached to the puppet's left hand, and the puppet's right hand is pinned to its side. Should the puppet need to manipulate a prop, the puppeteer holds the puppet's hand and the prop, creating the illusion that the puppet is holding the object.
