Avenue Q

"If I told them once, I told them a hundred times to put Spinal Tap first, and Puppet Show last." This fabulous quote was on my mind as Avenue Q was about to start at the LA Valley College theater. I'd heard about the show--puppets, monster puppets, puppet sex. Sesame Street wanna be?! Free to be, you and me?! I didn't know what to expect.

Well, expect to laugh heartily. Expect to be a surprised (spoiler alert: porn saves the day). Expect to be a little uncomfortable ("Everyone's a little bit racist," for example). Expect Gary Coleman as the building supervisor. Expect a really good time!

Avenue Q has been making the rounds for about 10 years. It was great to see it up close in the local community theater, and my friend's friend played Trekkie Monster. Good times!
