oh and hey aside from watching a movie last Sunday, i also watched a play the previous day (Saturday).
Avenue Q reached me via word-of-mouth regales and finally, i was able to watch it with my friends. what made this play unique is the use of puppets we knew from childhood. it makes a mockery of our naivete back when everything was so uncomplicated to us since we were sheltered from all life's complications at a young age.
in Avenue Q, we see these puppets from our childhood but they are presented in a new light tackling different society issues from racial discrimination, homosexuality, education, underemployment, and human relationships. the simple plot revolved around young Princeton's carefree-turned-complicated life by the said issues. with the use of effective punch lines and songs, the issues were presented in a lighter tone, yet the reality bites are still there.
overall, i loved the play! =)
