There’s no where to go but home to Avenue Q!

Oh oh oh, I never told you guys!

The Boy’s birthday is coming up next month and considering the fact that he’s successfully obtained his degree and will be officially graduating soon (hurrah!!!) AND the fact that he’s having a bit of a lame time with his job right now COMBINED WITH a huge shortage of money for both of us because we’re saving for Australia, well I thought he deserved something a bit special for his birthday (White Rabbit, no dirty sniggering!!!).

So with a not-so-stressful amount of research I managed to track down a relatively cheap trip to London for a long weekend during September!

*pause for cheering and applause*

And being the lovely boy he is, he did feel it would be cruel for me to be in London and NOT see a musical of some sort, so he said he didn’t mind if we went to a show during one of the nights.

Swell boy, right!?

BUT I did compromise and found superbly cheap tickets for Avenue Q, which I saw on Broadway a couple of years ago.

This is no ordinary musical.

With a cast that is half-human-half-puppet, songs that include If You Were Gay, The Internet is for Porn and Everyone’s  a Little Bit Racist and an entire scene dedicated to puppet sex, this is THE boy musical.

They should take more advantage of that in their ad campaigns:

Avenue Q -The Musical for the Man who is too Manly and Awesome and Straight for Musicals….

….or something like that!

  7. I resent that comment Hermia – I only sniggered a little!

    I love Avenue Q. I know all the words and Boyfriend did NOT appreciate me singing along loudly whenever we went to see the show in the West End

    You’ll have such a great time!

  8. I wanted to see this when we were in London but we never had the chance. Hope you have a great time!
