Avenue Q: We Love You

April 25th, 2008 by jake · 1 Comment

Last evening we had the opportunity to see Avenue Q at The Louisville Palace and we’ve gotta say: GO SEE IT. Click here to buy tickets for as little as $25. There are five shows remaining through Sunday, April 27. If you enjoy our inappropriate crap here at Page One the least little bit, you’ll flip over this PNC Broadway presentation. It’s vulgar, inappropriate and we loved every minute of it. Very rarely do old ladies get uncomfortable– but they certainly did last night.

From the website:

AVENUE Q is Broadway’s smash-hit 2004 Tony Award® winner for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK. A hilarious show full of heart and hummable tunes, AVENUE Q is about trying to make it in NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Called “one of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see” by Entertainment Weekly, AVENUE Q features a cast of people and puppets who tell the story in a smart, risque and downright entertaining way. The New Yorker calls it “SUBVERSIVE and UPROARIOUS!” Recommended for ages 13 and up.

I can’t say much about it without ruining things. But. Uh. Drop all plans to see it. Do it. Here’s a better summary: hilarity, adult Sesame Street, occasional foul language, Gary Coleman, puppet nudity, Mrs. Thistletwat, hilarity, hilarity, hilarity, schadenfreude. Go. See. It.

Special thanks to our theater-loving Republican friend for suggesting we see the show.
