Oddball musical will make you laugh

Have your say

Avenue Q seemed to appear out of nowhere; channeling my childhood with crude songs, naughty jokes, and a plot line completely down to earth.

Avenue Q

Ferneham Hall

The nostalgic similarity to The Muppets makes this musical seem familiar, as if you’ve seen it all before.

South Downe Musical Society gave a flawless performance, making me laugh until I cried with lines I’m sure only puppets can get away with.

The characters were easy to relate to, and completely believable. Main character Princeton, played by Alex Hillman, reminded me of How I Met Your Mother’s Ted Mosby as he searched for his purpose in life, while Kate Monster (Sally Goddard) tugged at my heartstrings with a powerful rendition of There’s a Fine, Fine Line.
