A Little Late to the Party

I recall having heard about Avenue Q some time ago and my first thought was “Oh great, musical puppetry. Yawn!”. Never really gave it a chance until I found a link to the Avenue Q interpretation of Fiddler on the Roof. Oh that was great and of course I’ve been wasting time on YouTube watching a bunch of their videos.

After the 2nd video it struck me, Avenue Q is Sesame Street for teens and adults. That being said I’ll have to go see them live some day. I’ve never been a person who loved musicals but they actually pull it off, and the puppetry is top notch. I should mention it also has a strong Monty Python flavor to it, as evidenced by this video titled “Everyone’s a little bit racist”. Puts me in mind of the song “Every Sperm is Sacred” in Monty Python’s “The Meaning of Life”. Ahem – “Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is great and if a sperm is wasted, God gets quite irate.” has been stuck in my mind for pretty much perpetuity.
