Friday night, Jen and I went to the The Fabulous Fox Theatre to watch Avenue Q. For those who don’t know, Avenue Q is commonly described as The Muppets on crack, but after seeing it for the first time, I can safely say it’s much more than that. While yes, it is scandalous and irreverent, it’s also really honest and freaking hilarious. This, more than any other play we’ve seen at the Fox is one where it’s best to sit down low, due to the puppets. Thankfully, we were able to get Row K, so while we were off to the side, we were close enough to see all the puppet expressions and pick up on some of the subtlety we would have otherwise missed.
I don’t want to ruin the show for other people who might be interested, but if you think that you might find this even remotely funny, you should definitely see it. There’s a clip down below my favorite song from the show. Now, this was performed at some variety show or something, but it still illustrates some of the humor in the show. And yeah, it’s completely un-PC.
