Just thought I'd share:
Saw Avenue Q at the Wynn in Las Vegas on Saturday. It was everything we hoped it'd be and more. Some of the original Broadway cast have come out to Vegas to recreate their roles, along with some new faces. All were absolutely terrific!
There are some things about the show's storyline you can't get from the cast album, such as the Bad Idea Bears (awwww, they're so cute! Yayyyyyy!), Mrs. Thistletwat, and the conclusion of the Lucy the Slut storyline. Also in the musical (and completely unexpected as it was not on the album) are some hilarious Sesame Street-like segments such as purpose/propose, come/mittment, 7 nightstands, etc.
If you're going to Vegas, I *highly* recommend seeing this show. The theatre is very intimate and there probably isn't a bad seat in the house. We were in the dead center near the back, and the view was terrific. The difference between "cheap" seats and "expensive" is $10, as the tickets are $89 and $99. I'm not sure how the view is from the upper level, but really, just spend the $10 to be in the $99 seats.
Also, though you may not take photos during the show, bring your camera, because an actor (not the one who played the character on stage, oddly) came out afterwards with the Kate Monster puppet to pose for photos.
