Between Avenues P and R

Saturday, June 28, 2008
My girlfriend and I just saw Avenue Q at the Civic Keller Auditorium. It was, in a word, HI-larious. I'm so glad she took me to see it!

the cover of our program

The musical is basically a send-up of Sesame Street, but it's not for kids... it's "life lessons" for the college graduate (and the mid-20s crowd) with songs like "What Do You Do With a BA in English?" and "It Sucks to Be Me". Each song will make the crowd laugh - and we certainly did. But behind the humor is also an interesting message and a stark - almost painful - portrait of the crushing reality that is adulthood (and the contrast of reality to the homes and dreams of the young.)

A quite enjoyable time, I assure you. During the intermission we walked across the street to the waterfall/fountain, splashed water on each other from one of the water fountains, and generally complained about it being nearly 100 degrees. Still... at least it was a dry heat.
