Hit or Miss

Avenue Q

Avenue Q. Last night, Mike and I went and caught the opening preview for Avenue Q (yeah! My first Broadway show!). It was just as brilliant as Mike’s original review of the off-broadway run said (though curiously, they must have cut the moment Mike leads with in his review). And my favorite song from the demo recordings they used to have on their website, “Tear It Up and Throw It Away,” was cut.

Anyway, I hope it has a long and healthy run and I’d love to see it again. But I wonder if it will produce some South-Park-like controversy when the Tony Awards roll around — all the best material is entirely inappropriate for broadcast TV.
