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 here.

The poster has been replaced by one showing the face of another puppet.

"Avenue Q" is a Tony-winning musical about twenty-something New Yorkers, both human and puppets, searching for life and love.

Shows are scheduled March 16 and 17 in Colorado Springs.
