    Re: Headed for Avenue Q 9/9/05

    Thanks for the heads up! It seems that the Reno & Vegas dates are not going ot be affected. I won't be able to travel to Vegas to catch the show again. Maybe I will see Barry Manilow after all.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

Don't be too disappointed if you don't get John and Rick, the cast I saw was AMAZING nonetheless. And if you're on the aisle, have a dollar ready!

    I have to say that it's so exciting for me to hear so much buzz about Ave Q on a Disney chat board. If I recall correctly, you - Mamabot - are something of a theatre person, right? But to hear so many chime in with excitement is inspiring.

    There is much criticism and debate regarding "Broadway" in Vegas. While all of us Las Vegas folk couldn't be more thrilled to actually have the opportunity to audition for paying musical theatre jobs, the rest of the world is very skeptical that musical theatre will work in LV. Ave Q is perfect for Las Vegas. Yes - it's on the vulgar side - dirty language and "full puppet nudity". But what I love is that it requires performers with major talent - not just dancers or singers or magicians - but performers who can sing and ACT, dance a little - and the puppeteering skills are amazing. AND - it has a lot of heart. At many points during the show, I could totally relate to one character or another and loved the honest and true portrayals the actors imparted. It was wonderful!

    So come to Las Vegas and see Q! And next year you can add Hairspray and The Phantom of the Opera (with the most amazing special effects ever) and in another year or two, Spamalot!
    I love Disneyland!

    Oh man, a resident cast of POTO would be SOOOOOO awesome!

    If they could get Brad Little to stick around in the title role, I'd be out SOOOOO much money though (Best Phantom since Michael!)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Headed for Avenue Q 9/9/05

    My theater roots go back more to my family. I am the one who did not get the talent genes, just the appreciation. I am a lover of musicals, who has, until recently, only seen musicals in the movies form. Being able to see musicals live has been a real treat for me.

    My first "Broadway" experience was Sunset Boulvard when it opened in Los Angeles. I had just read the book AND seen the movie, so I was a bit disappointed. Plus our seats were horrid, so that turned me off a little.

    When my brother started doing all these great musicals in high school, I started getting the bug again. The only show I saw at his school was Singin' in the Rain, complete with rain on the stage. Those kids were fantastic! I wish I hadn't lived in Colroado the whole time he was in HS. I would have liked to have gone to more shows.

    Bring on the discussions of musical theater! I enjoy hearing about new shows from everyone. I am glad that they are bringing more shows to Las Vegas. It is a great way for the West Coast dwellers to be able to see a show without having to travel to New York, nor to have to hope that tickets will be available on short tours of shows.

    well, you must be feeling some definite schadenfreude right now

    -"schadenfreude, huh? what's that some kind of nazi word"
    -"yup! it's german for happiness at the misfortune of others"
    -"happiness at the misfortune of others...that IS german"
    You would think that being in New York for eight months out of the year would be cool...not when the closest thing you have to Disneyland is the World of Disney Store on Madison.

    I LOVE LOVE Avenue Q and you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE it too! I was lucky enough to win front row tickets in NY for cheap!

    Re: Headed for Avenue Q 9/9/05

    Okay, now I'm all excited about going to Vegas!

    I was "thinking about" going to see Avenue Q but now I'll make that a definite. I haven't seen "O" yet, so might as well do that too! Thank you for giving me the push I needed to get out there.

    Now, I just need to figure out where the money will come from...

    Re: Headed for Avenue Q 9/9/05

    So I realize this is a somewhat old thread but since I found this thread on Google and already had a MiceChat username I figured I'd post here.

    I saw Avenue Q tonight and loved it but was wondering if anybody knew how long John Tartaglia and Rick Lyons were going to be sticking around. I heard they were leaving later this month but don't know yet.
