Musical Moments – Avenue Q (Everybody’s a Little Racist)

I have always felt Avenue Q whilst so tongue in cheek also managed to push the boundaries with some of the lyrics and songs but makes you think about what everything has become over the years.

The show is touring the UK again later this year, you really should head out to see it! Today’s musical moment was sparked from last weeks Liam Neeson interview . . .

Broadway: Pretty Woman the Musical (Production Stills)

I currently feel that I am being haunted by this new musical based on the popular film of Pretty Woman which has recently opened on Broadway. I am really hoping to get to see it in November even more after the new production shots have been released with so many classic moments from the film included in these stills! Pretty Woman the Musical, has anyone out there who reads my blog seen it yet?
