Won’t you be my neighbor?

Posted Jan 09 2012 3:33pm

Super excited that this evening, I start reherasals for the musical, Avenue Q !

If you’ve never heard of it, I can tell you, it’s like Sesame Street, but pretend that the whole gang went out to a bar after counting to 20, got completely hammered (and a little frisky) and started explaining how the world really works (complete with lots of profanity).

It’s a hilarous show, and it requires the use of puppets!!

I’m playing Lucy (The Slut) and will have to learn how to be a decent puppeteer, while singing… And those of you who know me well know that walking and chewing gum can be a challenge, sooooo, I’m sure it will take plenty of practice. :D

The show tackles issues like racism, one night stands, life after college, the dangers of alcohol abuse, homelessness, homosexuality, and heartbreak just to name a few. It discusses these topics with a bucket full of stereotypes, clever jokes, and a very surprising dollop of heart (not from my character, cause, she’s a total bootch, but whatevs).

I’m stoked to have to learn an entirely new skill set for this show, because I really think it will help to make the experience all the more enjoyable.

I can’t wait until we get our puppets, because I’m SO excited to “meet lucy” and develop her personalilty. :D

I’m also more than a little hopeful that being in this show, laughing constantly, and having something to work on will knock me out of this little funk!
