Don’t let the blog title fool you. Not that I’m overly egotistical and think you SHOULD be me, but my life isn’t half bad. What I AM referring to, however, is the Broadway play “Avenue Q,” which is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a very long time and also playing in Kansas City right now (actually, today is the last day, I believe).
The idea behind the show is a modern day, realistic and raunchy Seasme Street. Which easily becomse one of those, why in the hell hasn’t this been done before and, more importantly, why didn’t I think of that, ideas.
Seriously, this show is hilarious. Not only is the play hilarious and well-written, the cast was incredible and how the actors acted with the puppets was amazing.
I don’t want to spoil too much about the show, but my favorite parts included the Bad Idea Bears – two adorable and sinister bears who try to convince people to do irresponsible things. They were two cute bears who talked in high-pitched voices and were trying to get the other puppets to buy more beer/drinks and to have sex. When the puppets wouldn’t agree, the bears would threaten suicide... all in a cute voice.
If any of you ever get the chance in New York to see the show, please do. That is, if you want to hear songs like:
If not, then maybe this show isn’t for you.
