Avenue Q

Image from here

On the weekend I went to see Avenue Q... for the second time. Yes I love it. It is so horribly inappropriate, rude and politically incorrect that even someone so terribly "good" as me can love it!! It is just like Sesame Street, similar characters, similar sets, similar songs. But oh so funny. Highlight songs for me are "It Sucks To Be Me", "If You Were Gay" and "The Internet Is For Porn".

The actors are just amazing. Natalie Alexopoulos as Kate Monster and Lucy T Slut, and Mitchell Butel as Princeton and Rod were the standout performers, however you shouldn't really single them out given that the cast is small and just bursting with talent. My friends and I laughed so hard we almost died, with one friend saying "I didn't realise there would be a laugh every 30 seconds!! I expected a laugh every 3 minutes at most!"

If you are in Brisbane you can see it at QPAC now... tickets available here. It isn't worth missing!!
