    In general, I can't stand musical theatre.

    We went along to see Avenue Q to support a buddy in the cast, and the first half was sensational. Really funny, I was actually enjoying a music theatre show. It contained one of my favourite songs:

    The second half, for some reason they threw the fantastic who-gives-a-shit, pisstaking attitude out the window and did the usual boring, flag-waving morality wrapup - and they didn't spare the cheese. It's like they had this great little world happening but the writer ran out of ideas and had to go back to the musical formula. Very disappointing.

    Having said that, it's far and away the best musical I've seen. Most of the cast is tops (WTF is with Gary Coleman?) and it's a good laugh - especially the first half. It's nowhere near as shit as RENT - and I'd be happy to let them use that quote on their posters.
  6. sucks to be me :roll:
