The latest installment of Sesame Street Live, "When Elmo Grows Up," has the Muppets imagining what careers they'll pursue when they get older. Elmo, Zoe, Abby Cadabby, we implore you: Never grow up. Spend the rest of your lives imagining and pretending and singing. Maybe this is the booze talking, but in our experience, the life of a working adult is gray and lifeless. Don't give up those wonder years without a fight, you felted little bastards. You can pretend to think about getting a job for entertainment purposes only, all right? All right. Me and Count Von Count are gonna tally up the empties while you sing about cowboys and forest rangers and meteorologists Wednesday through Sunday (January 23 to 27) at the Scottrade Center (South 14th Street and Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com). Tickets are $11 to $34.
