I know exactly what you mean- that song is my favourite too! I have the Carnegie Hall version but don't like it too much. The part of the song that I love the most isn't the same: the bit where they sing "on an island in

*puts up hand* I'm also surprised- in a good way!! I thought it'd be like once people have got over the idea of seeing puppets swearing and having sex, then they'd get bored and all forget about it! And it seems like EVERYBODY has seen it! But its still new to some people (I've only known about this show for about 4mths) and those who have seen it, see it again and again!

Its a shame its closing- I never got to see the this show on Broadway. I watched it in London though (many times as I was an usher at the theatre)- it was there four months and I NEVER got bored of it, I watched it every night. I LOVED it!!! Omg, I'd do anything to see it one last time People who have seen this show in the States are so passionate about this show, its amazing!
Heres a pic from the set (which is exactly the same as the Broadw

We discussed this on the Ave Q board. Some theories: "When some japenese people come to america they want to change there name. They want it to sound more american. Many will take famous actors or actress' names. I'm guessing they're using a traditonal american holiday to make it more funny"
"i think it's because japanese names always have this "resounding" meaning, if i can say, like "akiko" (i think) it's "light child", arashi "son of the storm" and stuff. So they decided to c
re: AVENUE Q - has it been changed yet? Aug 15

Its not just changes so the London audience understand, there are also some orchestral arrangements to some songs here and there. I read somewhere that the producers had things in the show that they had wanted to change for ages and were glad to make them in the London show- not sure what they all are though as I havent seen the Broadway show!

How come so many people on this board find Sweeney Todd so emotional to watch? (This isn't a critisism, I'm just wondering)

When this show was on in London, I was an usher at the theatre, and watched it nearly every night for 3 months- I never got sick of it! It's all because of this show why I started learning the cello! It finished here a year and a half ago and I miss it so much! I'd love to see the Broadway version. You lucky people that are going- ENJOY!!!
I cried at the end of Blood Brothers- when they sing the last song. And this is mad but theres one part in Avenue Q that makes me want to cry for a split-second - at the end of 'Fantasies Come True' when Rod says "Goodnight Nicky" and everyone says "awwww"- it's just too sweet! Hahaha!!
I havent seen Les Mis yet so I dunno if i'd cry at that...!

Rentaholic, I don't know why they changed the Wicked logo (to simply just make it different maybe?) but I know the Q logo was changed because the Broadway orange one is based on the NY subway logo -which we obviously don't have in London! Also, I guess its a recognition thing too: you can associate the yellow colour with the London show and the orange with Broadway.
