Life Outside Your Apartment
I went to see the touring production of Avenue Q tonight here in Minneapolis. I've had the soundtrack for a while, and have hoped to see the show for a long time.
I was familiar with the soundtrack -- and as someone who grew up with Sesame Street that sort of style is very much ingrained in my brain, but it was interesting to see an actual production.
And this is something that's really most appropriate for a live production -- a filmed version would be tempted to hide the actors, and you'd lose half of the acting there. It's a great example of something that is done well as a live production, and would be something completely different in a filmed version.
They'll only be in Minneapolis for a few more days, but the tour is going to continue around the country for most of the year -- and is definitely worth seeing.
