"The Internet is for Porn!"

Finally i've got round to blogging about Avenue Q although after giving myself concussion yesterday i am still feeling a bit groggy, however maybe i shut shut my head in the car door more often as that the best nights sleep i've had for ages!!
So it was almost 2 weeks ago mum and i hitched a lift in the coach that david and his work collegues had hired to take them to london for their Festive outing. They had booked for Chicago and a meal after at some strange restaurant, and although mum and i tried to look for tickets to Chicago on Lastminute.com a few times, we had no luck. so we searched though the other shows. But narrowing our search to that day, the amount we were willing to pay and it being a matinee left us with not many options. So we plucked for Avenue Q.
There were 3 choices for the title to this post. the one i chose, "it sucks to be me" or "everyone's a little bit racist". The musical is a lively mix of Puppets and Humans, with some very talented puppetiers, covering a wide range of subject including racism, sex, finding your purpose in life.

I think my favourite was "It sucks to be me!" so much so that i forked out £5 for a magnet that says just that!
Over all a fantastic show, we laughed til we cried, but in my opinion not for kids!

Here's a little medley of songs from the show than was performed at the Southbank show:
