    Re: Avenue Q

    I haven't but my daugher and her fiance saw it in San Diego last week. They thought it was pretty funny, but did contain a lot of adult themes and material. But I'm guessing you already know that.

    I have the soundtrack, and am dying to get a chance to go and see it. All of my students rave about it.

    Re: Avenue Q

    I saw it about a year or so ago when it opened at the Wynn in Las Vegas with the original New York cast (minus Stephanie D'Abruzzo).

    It was great, very funny!

    It won several Tony awards including:

    Best Musical
    Best Book of a Musical
    Best Original Score

    and was also nominated for:

    Best Direction of a Musical
    Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical
    Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical

    Go see it!

    And I will add it beat out Wicked for best musical that year, so that says something I think.

    It's so funny, you really need to see it. It's good if you're looking for something fun and easy to follow. There isn't a complicated story, and that makes musicals difficult at times. Besides, puppets ensue hilarity. I think it's a given.

    Speedway, if there's any doubt in your mind, the song titles from the album ought to convince you:

    Haven't seen it yet, but it's going to be in Columbus during the next season of Broadway shows (and included in the season pass!). I'm definitely going to try to make it.

    Also coming are Spamalot and Sweeney Todd and The Lion King. May be a busy year for me.

    Spamalot is another hilarious show. I took my theater class to see it 2 years ago and everyone loved it!
