I had never heard of this show. I can’t remember which one of my friends from work told me about it, but we made a collective decision to go. When I read up on it I was sort of wary because it was described as “A hilarious show full of heart and hummable tunes, AVENUE Q is about trying to make it in NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Called “one of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see” by Entertainment Weekly, AVENUE Q features a cast of people and puppets who tell the story in a smart, risqué and downright entertaining way. The New Yorker calls it “SUBVERSIVE and UPROARIOUS!” A show with puppets?? What?? Well, I’m so glad that we went. Subversive and uproarious, indeed!! And I loved every minute of it. It was so entertaining and surprising. I can honestly say that I’ve NEVER seen a show quite like it before or since. It was thoroughly entertaining. And as my first major show in Austin, it was a great start to the next phase in my life. It was around this time that the seeds were being planted for my next adventure here in my new home of Austin, Texas. All the creative juices were starting to flow and getting out to this show truly helped push me forward.
