Avenue Q

(Avenue Q opens in London on 1 June)

So after Weiyi linked me to this page with its lip-synced rendition of "The Internet is for Porn", I got curious about the musical the song's from and started looking it up.

It looks mighty interesting. Who could resist a musical with a Sesame Street-styled mix of puppets and humans, including one who sounds exactly like Cookie Monster, and two -cough- roommates so reminiscent of Bert and Ernie?

The songs sound pretty good too. I'm trying not to find out too much about the full story right now, since I fully intend to watch it some day, but aside from "The Internet is for Porn", here's one I found really poignant, "I Wish I Could Go Back to College".

//I wish I could go back to college.
In college you know who you are.
You sit in the quad, and think, "Oh my God!
I am totally gonna go far!"//

Sigh. If only.
