There's a fine. fine line - Avenue Q

Had a blast at Avenue Q today with great company! I was a lil skeptical at first - I mean, it's like Muppets, and you can see the puppeteers too! But it was brilliant! From the soundtrack to the set design to the puppets which had the puppeteers emoting with them as well!

I love the satirical dialogue, even the songs and themes discussed - definitely not for kids! The digs at Sesame Street was also brilliant and this set the tone for a irreverant, playful musical! Good stuff! Again, the Sporean audience was responsive and appreciated the humor in the musical and we managed to squeeze in a few laughs at ourselves!

Muppets gone wrong? Nahz, it's just a facade for playful humor I say! Schadenfreude anyone? (yes it's a real word I kid you not!) :D

One of my fav songs from the musical, both poignant and sad:

There's a fine, fine line - Avenue Q
Kate Monster:
There's a fine, fine line between a lover and a friend;
There's a fine, fine line between reality and pretend;
And you never know 'til you reach the top if it was worth the uphill climb.

There's a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of time.

There's a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie;
And there's a fine, fine line between "You're wonderful" and "Goodbye."
I guess if someone doesn't love you back it isn't such a crime,
But there's a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of your time.

And I don't have the time to waste on you anymore.
I don't think that you even know what you're looking for.
For my own sanity, I've got to close the door
And walk away...
Oh...

There's a fine, fine line between together and not
And there's a fine, fine line between what you wanted and what you got.
You gotta go after the things you want while you're still in your prime...

There's a fine, fine line between love
And a waste of time.
