Lana Del Rey Gets A Little Bit Racist At An Avenue Q Performance!

lana-del-rey-avenue-q-performance

Well, not really!

We just were thinking about how the song Everyone's A Little Bit Racist would sound re-worked with her vocal stylingz and aesthetic!

And if not that one, The Internet Is For Porn!

LOLz!

Either way, Lana Del Rey took a break from performing herself to sit back and be an audience member at a matinee of Avenue Q over the week, and was spotted

Perez Reviews: Avenue Q!

We had never seen Avenue Q before, but all that (thankfully) changed Sunday night!

We made it a point to see the musical during our most recent run of show-going in NYC, and we're sooo glad we did!

Avenue Q is the original Book Of Mormon!!! Sorta literally! A lot of the Mormon team worked on Avenue Q too, like the amazing Robert Lopez.

This new production is running at the New World Stages, where we saw Rent last fall. The theaters seat close to 600 people, and though it's technically "Off-Broadway", its still in the heart of the theater district. And such great shows as Rent and Q are playing there!

We were so pleasantly surprised by Avenue Q! We were expecting debauchery and great comedy, which we got, but we also got some killer songs and a whole lot of heart! We soooo related to the characters in the show. Yes, puppets!

In addition to the raciness and salaciousness, there was also a lot of emotion and depth!

Loved! Loved! Loved it!

And all of the actors were so good too! Those roles are vocally demanding!!!

And that Darren Bluestone is so dreamy! Ha

Such a fun time!!!

Avenue Q Creator Modifies Show In Coleman's Memory

Filed under: Broadway BabiesR.I.P.

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.

Creators Of South Park Get Mormon For Broadway!

Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesDisney

This is going to EFFING RIDICULOUS.

We can't wait!!

The brilliant creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have always infused their hysterical comedy series with musical numbers and songs, so it's no surprise that they've been working on a stage musical, but one based on the Mormon faith?!

Apparently so!

The team has collaborated with Avenue Q creator Robert Lopez, director Jason Moore and producers Scott Rudin and Anne Garefino on The Book of Mormon, which will revolve around two Mormon missionaries attempting to spread their faith in Uganda, interwoven with the story of Mormon founder Joseph Smith!

WTF?? We know!

But for all the Mormons in the world whose hearts just stopped, you can relax for the most part - despite their usual dose of political incorrectness and satire, the HIGHlarious writers have no ill will for the faith!

Stone asserts that none of their work, especially South Park, would never work "if it didn't have a heart."

"We learned a long time ago that if something is cynical just for the sake of being cynical, it won't last too long."

Parker agrees:

"There's a lot of Mormon stuff in our work because Matt and I both grew up around a lot of Mormons. I've never met a Mormon I didn't like. They're really nice people. They're so Disney. They're so Rodgers and Hammerstein. We're bigger authorities on The Book of Mormon than most Mormons. Broadway is big and scary to us. And by no means are we coming in to kick Broadway's ass. We're pretty sure we're going to get our asses kicked. But Bobby and Scott and Jason have a lot of the theater experience, so with their help, maybe we won't fall flat on our faces."

As bizarre as the concept is, we're confident that these guys will pull it off! They've got a great team assembled and rarely miss their mark.

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Book of Mormon??
