The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

First Broadway musical experience

Rob came home yesterday evening from his office with tickets to watch a show in Broadway. It was also our first time using the famed subway in NYC. The Broadway theatre district was very bright with lots of lights and huge screens on buildings. The people traffic in Broadway on a Friday night was indeed a sight to behold, yet annoying.

The show is called Avenue Q, a comedy musical that won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2004. Most of the characters are puppets, and the musical is said to be inspired by Sesame Street. But far from it being a kids' show, this hilarious musical deals with a lot of adult issues, and is certainly good for lots of laughs. This entry in Wikipedia gives a good outline of the musical. The cast was a group of very talented people, both in terms of acting and singing. We both enjoyed it very much, and was very lucky to have gotten free tickets ($100 each!) to the show.
