Avenue Q
Now into it’s 3rd year - this Muppety Sesame Street wise show is a musical that is really is something completely different.  Said to be very rude and irreverent or just very funny - you have 2 hours of laughing ahead.  Laughing is rated highly as an exercise (over aerobics) so you could lose weight into the bargain. It's the sort of show where people go more than once because it's so much fun. When it opened off Broadway in 2002 it had to be extended four times before they caught on it was popular and it played Broadway to critical acclaim.

"Brash, vulgar, sometimes downright obscene, I loved every minute of it"
Christopher Hart, Sunday Times.

The story
Set on a downtown street in New York the characters, out of work and luck are nonetheless seeking their purpose in life highlighted by Princetons journey of self discovery. Every performance is a bit different due to a spontaneous feel and ad hoc Whitty.  You'll probably want to see it again. One reviewer said it was for the  iPod generation (does that mean young?)  the audience span a pretty wide age range.  Oldies like to laugh and they like iPods as so it must mean we are ALL the iPod generation waiting for our new iPhone.

It's one of those things that looks almost naff on the theatre outside (the puppets are better in action than in photos) and was expected to be a short run.  It's getting increasingly popular though. - it's not all puppets I saw them outside the theatre once - they are very much humans though it's the puppets who have all the sex - no worries.

Music and lyrics - Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, book by Jeff Whitty, based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. Director - Jason Moore.  Puppets -  Rick Lyon; musical supervision - Stephen Oremus, and choreography - Ken Roberson.  scenery - Anna Louizos, costume - Mirena Rada, lighting - Howell Binkley, and sound design - Acme Sound Partners.
