I Have tickets book for the final matinee! Some reviews are mixed but my friend says it's the best thing she has ever seen!

Wondering what people think....if they have seen it?

Absolutely fantastic - nice, cute score, clever wordplay in the lyrics, brilliantly performed and staged, and the funniest thing I have ever seen!

Thanks for the reassurance!
Thought it would be the case where the critics were wrong! I watch a review of the London production of Avenue Q and it was awful. Just goes to show critics can and often get it wrong :)

Again thanks for the reassurance!
I'm not expecting it to be the best thing I have ever seen as I'm sure it will remain 'hair' for a very long time. Just wanted to make sure I would enjoy it!

I wouldn't call the reviews mixed. A couple of the usual suspects didn't think it was funny - they never do - but most of the critics loved it.

As did I.
Faced with these Loreleis, what man can moralize!
