AVENUE - Q-AWESOME -
WOW/WHAT WE'RE UP AGAINST
Having seen Avenue Q before with the Broadway cast, I must say that this group is every bit as good as the original. Perhaps better. The puppets (hand held and manipulated by humans) - are totally impressive. If you can't laugh out loud, as most every one does - you will at least have a smile on your face during the outrageous fast paced show.
It's Spiky-Drowsy-Chaperone- Dazzling- O.K. to be Gay during the fast paced evening. You'll love songs like "The Internet is for Porn" - it will certainly make you sit up in your seat. But if sex and race jokes bother you, then this show is NOT for you.
This happy go lucky cast does two or more vocal parts. They are so irresistible, that you will find yourself humming and singing the tunes during intermission. Even when I left - people were humming the songs on the street. Yea - it's catchy, hip, wicked and amazingly funny. All the songs are wicked and beyond parodies. Here is a sample lyric: "You Can Be as Loud when you're making Love". Keep in mind this isn't Sesame Street - it's Avenue "Q".
Every song has a message. Here's one that everyone loved: - "It's O.K. to be Gay." Most musicals have pointless contrived words - not so with Avenue Q. All the songs have great meaning important to the individuals on the stage. And believe me - they're never dull moments - but, of course there are some gross-out moments. Even puppets has simulated sex on stage. And the centerpiece of the show is the hilarious Gary Coleman.
The score is groundbreaking gleefully bawdy Earl pop rock music One of the most fantastic puppets is "Lucy the Slut" who turns to religion. Yes - she does a complete turn-a-round - so to speak and big tits.
This play fast enough thinks that everyone on the stage is really crazy on a charming roller-coaster ride! Best tart and terrific musical that I've seen in years. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
