What to see...


Mermaids are such flirts
Originally uploaded by FrogMiller
After some extended time off, I'm inching back to daily posting. Except we will be out of town this weekend at a wedding. And we are going to start an intensive housecleaning period, because we have houseguests coming in October. So, we'll see...

Tonight, we've got tickets to Avenue Q. I don't know too much about the show, but everything I've heard sounds good, so I'm excited!

Speaking of musicals, Denver Center Attractions has announced the touring shows for 2009:

New:
The Color Purple
Tang Concubines
Quilters
August: Osage County
A Bronx Tale
Spring Awakening
Little House on the Prairie


Returning:
Phantom of the Opera
Rent
Wicked


Beth and I have seen Wicked, and Beth really wants to see Phantom. So, except for those two, does anyone have any recommendations?

Saw Avenue Q a few weeks ago and thought it was hilarious. Def not for the kiddies!

You can see a few clips on YouTube, but one friend commented that the surprise element adds to the impact.

Yes, I am glad I didn't know much about it before I went!

Since you're going to see Avenue Q, I'm going to assume you're not too easily offended and recommend Spring Awakening. It was possibly the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

Besides the content, which I thought was very well done, but still shocking, the technical aspects are fantastic as well. The lights and the scenery had a greater effect on me than did those of either Wicked or Phantom. But that might have been since SA is so emotionally charged.

It's also very much unlike any other musical I've ever seen, in terms of the songs representing the characters' inner thoughts, the use of handheld mics, and the lyrics being anachronistic to the time in which it's set.

In short, it's really good. :)

Thank you! I thought Spring Awakening sounded interesting; good to know it lives up to the hype...

You want a recommendation?
I recommend you quit procrastinating and start posting a trip report about your visit to NYC, my friend. It's been like, what, a month since you popped into my neck of the woods? Your adventure is going to be stale as a baguette left out in the prop room overnight.

(At least post or send me the photos of us riding the racing boats at the ESPN Zone.)

I've so been dying to see Avenue Q, I love the songs in it! I barely missed the run out here in Vegas.

Too bad that you missed it, because it is probably unlikely that the tour will come to Vegas. Maybe if it tours long enough...
