There really is something endearing and special about this show. Some complain how WICKED should have won best musical in 2004, but I really think the Best Musical won that night. Part of the reason Avenue Q is a bit superior to WICKED, is because the characters are fleshed out more. You can really relate to the situation of Q and the Humor and Jokes in the show are really just top notch. It really is a gem to Musical Theatre.
So Lauren Bacall me, anything goes! *wink*

I was born with green skin, so I can really relate to Elphaba too though.

I don't trim down there, so I can relate to Avenue Q more.

I love it when my boyfriend puts his finger there, so I relate to AVENUE Q more.

I bet no one else has ever had that thought in almost 10 years.

Nate/Broadway Guy only has original thoughts once every ten years, so that's about right.

My favorite part was when the puppets sang the funny songs.

The fact that Idina Menzel looks like a puppet doesn't mean she is one. Rude.

You have to admire Nate's genius in saying he likes Avenue Q so much "because the characters are fleshed out more" when the characters are in fact, pieces of fabric.

I bought the CD and listened to it once. I think I laughed three times. No, maybe it was two.

Haven't listened to it since. I saw some clips, as well, and putting all of that together, I have no interesting seeing the show.

Having worked at the theater where Ave. Q is, I must have seen it oh, about 30 times. Never got tired of it.

I believe it is running ten years now.

I worked on the Off-West End premier of Avenue Q, did the show about 50 times. I was still struggling to do my job by the end due to laughing so much. Wish we had it perpetually running in London like New York.

But I do agree that sloth pugs I enjoy the Avenue Q score more, not having Wicked win that is a little but mad.

It's a shame Ann Harada wasn't nominated for BFA. She is a hoot!

Oh, TOTALLY. I recently saw her in a revival of Seussical set in the circus. 'Twas incredible.
