For a show that only has a few months left, was it worth spending thousands on a new website, probably not, BUT it's a brilliant new site anyway!

Anyone else predict a tour?
A friend had apparantly been cast as Brian in a professional version of Avenue Q. When I last spoke nto him he knew nothing about but had a meeting about it Monday. I haven't spoken to him since, but watch this space.

Great website but 5 months is still a long run for a show to complete.

That's true, but they must have known a closure was likely for some time now!

My main point was just why spend this money when they're gonna get nothing back from it as they are closing, and they already had a brilliant website!

re: Avenue Q Website

No, it was only decided 3 weeks ago and they said they would give it a good 6 month closure period. You must also realize that the public wont start seeing announcements its closing till Dec or Jan.
Same thing happened with 'Spamalot' -they decide to close 3 moths ago- the first ads in the press appeared just 2 weeks ago.
Its very common practice that a a show knows its coming off many months in advance except of course if its 'Gone With The Wind'.
When 'Evita' closed at the Prnce Edward in Feb 1986 they decided one whole year prior and even advertised the fact from 10 months before the last perf. It was odd to see posters all over London saying 'last 9 months', 'last 6 months' etc and back then it was even stranger to be buying theatre tickets 10 months in advance- I got my last night seats in April 1985 and still only got 3rd row circle!
