It's all in a day's - and night's - work, insists Jacqueline Grabois, whose handiwork includes manipulating anythingbut-pedestrian puppets in "Avenue Q," the street theater of a different sort that took home the Tony Award as best musical on Broadway in 2004, and continues its raucously funny road tour this weekend as part of the Kimmel Center's "Broadway Series" at the Academy of Music (www. kimmelcenter.org).Delving into mature themes that will never find parking space at "Sesame Street," "Avenue Q" takes its cue from headline issues, and invites kids to stay at home and let their parents parade its serpentine sidewalk where prejudice ("Everyone's a Little Racist") and postcollege reality ("What Do You Do With a B.A. in English?") pepper the show.She's traveled far from "Avenue Q" - the Miami-nice native having performed, before taking on the tour, in "Shout! The Mad Musical"; national/ inter national tours of "Hairspray" (as VeIma Von Tussle - "the bad girls are the best to play," she laughs); and "Double V," a drama about the Holocaust.
