Avenue Q

The best way to go into any musical, is without expectations. Worked for me tonight when I watched Avenue Q :)
As I read on another website, there's no better way to describe it other than "Muppets meet South Park". It's definitely different to other musicals I've seen.
I won't spoil it for you. Here are my ratings:
Hilarity: I laughed lots. Liked the first half better than the second. So 3.5 stars.
Originality: It's puppets, name one other musical that does it with puppets. 4 stars. Hrm, but it did steal ideas from Team America. Make that 3 stars.
Musical Score: Songs got a bit bland after awhile. 3 stars.
Overall: I'd give it 3.5 stars (I'm hard to please :P). Worth seeing since it's different format from the usual musicals.

Thanks for organising tix B!

I just saw a musical called "Urinetown"... but it wasn't with puppets.
