As well as the humour, I was also surprised how emotional I became at the lives of these little puppets on Avenue Q; a brilliant show all-round.
Hilariously insightful, touchingly funny, tunefully sharp and filthily charming, Avenue Q is the street where you laugh.
Irreverent puppet musical Avenue Q stands the test of time thanks to its outrageous humour and catchy songs – heartily recommended for anyone in need of a laugh!
This Sell A Door tour of the excellent puppet musical Avenue Q shows just how well it is standing the test of time.
Committing to review a show that you adore is a risk, especially a show you saw ten years ago, obsessed over, bought the soundtrack, played it a hundred times over and to which you know almost every word. Thankfully, Avenue Q entirely paid off, with a production of such quality that I have fallen in love with it all over again.
The Avenue Q puppets are back in one of the naughtiest and funniest musicals around, and they will make you laugh, cringe, gasp and howl as they make their way round the UK.
In this episode of The Show People Podcast, host Andrew Keates was joined by Simon Lipkin, just before he went into rehearsal for Nativity – The Musical – a show that is led by improvisation and Simon revealed the challenges and freedoms that method of performing can present.
In this episode of The Show People Podcast, host Andrew Keates is joined by Julie Atherton, shortly after completing the West End run of The Grinning Man at Trafalgar Studios.
Much of my ‘touring’ has been concentrated in Bristol and Chichester; there are a few other UK venues to add to the list, as well as some from my week in New York, of course.
It was another musical theatre coup at Edge Hill this week, as Preston-born West End star Julie Atherton took to the Arts Centre stage, for a fun and enjoyable one-night event.
Back to charm a new generation of theatregoers, Avenue Q is as tuneful, hilarious and relevant as ever in this confidently staged revival production.
Acerbic: Packed with proper grownup moments and thoroughly entertaining with it, the Sell A Door production of Avenue Q steams on with its cynicism buttons set to stun.
I’m a bit of an Avenue Q fan, I think we can admit that. In fact, every time this production has appeared anywhere near home I’ve made a point to go see it, you can read my thoughts on this production in Winchester and Portsmouth to find out just how much I loved it the last time it toured the UK.
Famed as the musical for people who don’t like musicals, I was delighted to be given the opportunity to revisit this quirky and surprising show. Not since 2007 have I been exposed to the Bad Idea Bears (possibly my favourite artistic invention) and the disgusting yet loveable porn-obsessed Trekkie Monster.
