Avenue Q is not the most upmarket of New York streets, and is about as far away from Park Avenue as you can get, but it is home to some lively and off the wall characters performed by an unholy comedic alliance of humans and puppets! Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate, has just moved to this neighbourhood as he desperately tries to follow his dreams and discover his ever-elusive purpose in life. A tiny bank balance, the distraction of a busty blonde and a variety of weird and wonderful friends and neighbours lead Princeton on a hilarious story of self-discovery. Life may suck on Avenue Q but being jobless, homeless, politically incorrect, having sex (whether hetero, homo or porno... and that s just the puppets) are just some of the topics featured in the terrific songs of this show.
Celebrated and talented performers perform the popular music of the stars of the 50's and 60's to create a fabulous evening's entertainment. An electrifying show that lights up the stage for over two hours with non-stop hit after hit after hit, bringing back all those amazing and wonderful memories from the decades that every Bobby Socks Girl and Blue Jeans Boy cherish and never want to forget. This show brings audiences to their feet and inspires them to want to sing, dance and be young again forever!
Dancing in the show requires all types of styles. This colourful retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his uncanny abilities and his designer coat sings out to young and old alike with a score which is wall to wall hits - including Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do. In this retelling of the Biblical story, Joseph is a handsome young man who is his father's favourite child, able to interpret dreams, and the bearer of an amazing coat. These facts lead Joseph's eleven brothers to become insatiably jealous. Thus, they sell Joseph into slavery to some passing Ishmaelites. After refusing the advances of his owner's wife, Joseph is sent to jail. Once in jail, he quickly becomes popular due to his ability to interpret dreams. The Pharaoh soon hears of Joseph's ability and appoints him to the post of Number Two man in Egypt. Years later, Joseph's now starving brothers arrive in Egypt and ask Joseph, whom they don't recognize, for assistance. Joseph, in turn, gives his brothers a scare, but eventually grants them all they desire, reveals his identity, and reunites the family.
Musical of Musicals is unique. That is down to the nature of the show. It consists of five mini-musicals each in the style of a famous Broadway composition team. The teams (and styles) are: Rodgers & Hammerstein - Stephen Sondheim - Jerry Herman - Andrew Lloyd Webber - Kander & Ebb (with a dash of Marvin Hamlisch to end proceedings). The key phrase is ?in the style of' as the actual melodies are original but very similar to those the above teams are known for. There is one story told five ways and that is a simple melodrama theme - the young girl who can't pay the rent, her boyfriend, an older woman/mentor and the evil landlord. Of course when Musical of Musicals was written, the musical RENT was still playing to sell-out audiences in New York. Each mini-musical sets the ?Rent' scenario in the style of those writers.
After being left at the altar, wannabe rock star Robbie - who makes his living as the wedding singer for hire of the title - succeeds in making every wedding as miserable as his own. Then he meets a sweet waitress named Julia, who attempts to cheer him up, and steals his heart in the process. The only trouble is, she’s about to be married. Can Robbie pull off the performance of the decade and win the girl of his dreams?
