In light of Gary Coleman's tragic death, the creator of Avenue Q, Jeff Marx, has told sources that there will be changes to the show's script in honor of the actor.
The show has taken a jab or two at Gary over the years, having named one of their characters after the late actor. Because the entire team felt "inspired" by Gary and his work, Jeff revealed that some of the lines in the Avenue Q script will now be altered, as them seem "inappropriate" to Gary's memory. Jeff added:
“It’s a very sad day for all of us and we’re really sorry to hear this. We all were inspired by him for many, many years.”
We're sure Gary was a good sport for all those years, but we bet wherever he is now, he appreciates the changes.
