Advantages: Fab cast, very funny
Finally went to see Avenue Q after 2 years of saying i will. If your not familiar, the play tells the story of the main characters who live on avenue q using seasme street puppets. Characters include "Lucy the slut", Investment banker Rod, and Trekkie Monster. We saw Avenue Q at the Noel Coward Theatre in London. We bought our brilliant tickets off lastminute.com- we paid £17.50 each. Our seats had a fantastic view and were situated on the Royal Circle balcony.
The show started on time- and it was a great 2 and a half hours (with a 15 minute recession). I don`t really want to say much as i don`t want to spoil it, however the cast were superb, the music and set were fab. If you like comdies such as Father Ted, Catherine Tate Show, Little Britain etc you will enjoy Avenue Q. At the recession, the theatre were selling tiny Haagen Dazs tub for £4! Everyone was flocking- so i recommend you to bring drinks and food unless you want to pay extortionate fees.
I noticed some people in the audience had brought their kids along- Avenue Q is funny but its has mature, adult themes and so i wouldn`t bring anyone under 18 to see it, but then that is my opinion. I would definetly recommend anyone with a sense of humour to see Avenue Q- funniest comedy of the year!
Summary: Avenue Q- brilliant!
