I’m trying desperately to get tickets for a November show of “Les Miserables”. I haven’t seen it even though I know some of it’s music. It was on stage when I was in London back in 2004, but I opted to see “Phantom of the Opera” instead (also a fantastic show to see live).
At the same venue where I’ll (hopefully) get to see Les Mis, my husband and I saw “Avenue Q” a couple years ago. I really don’t even know how to sum up what an awesome (and not kids- appropriate) show this is! Puppets! Singing! Hilarious non-PC jokes!
Winner of the TONY® “TRIPLE CROWN” for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart. Don’t miss out on this chance to save big on this long-running Broadway hit!
AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named PRINCETON who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets KATE (the girl next door), ROD (the Republican), TREKKIE (the internet sexpert), LUCY THE SLUT (need we say more?), and other colorful types who help PRINCETON finally discover his purpose in life! (from the Avenue Q website).
And now the big news of today is that two of the show’s gay characters/puppets will be getting married (you know, since it’s legal in NY now). Congrats Rod and Ricky. I’m sure your wedding will be fabulous!
