Avenue Q Final Run – 5 Reasons Why You Should Not Miss the Opening Night of Avenue Q’s Final Run!

1. Get to see the first time performance of Carla Guevarra-Laforteza as the new Kate Monster and Lucy T. Slut.
There is a long insider story on why Rachel Alejandro, 2007 Theater Best Actress-Musical Winner for Avenue Q, was replaced by Carla. Carla was a Miss Saigon alumni and honorable mention in the 2007 Theater awards for her performance in “Song & Dance”. Rachel is the soul of the past two sold-out performances of Avenue Q. Can Carla take Kate Monster and Lucy T. Slut to a whole different level? (If you know the insider story, please post on the comments section.)

    Rachel Alejandro (“Avenue Q”). The best word for her turn here is exquisite, if not awesome.
    Among the many pleasures of this musical, Alejandro’s aching rendition of
    “There’s a Fine, Fine Line” will be remembered for some time.

    2. If you missed the first two runs of Avenue Q, this is your last chance to see it in Manila.
    Avenue Q is performing in Singapore in late October at the Esplanade Theater for a three-week run produced by The Singapore Repertory Theater. I’m glad that they decided to have a final run in Manila. Don’t miss this for the third time – it is really good!

    3. Be the first one to blog about it!
    One of my SEO secrets for my OAP blog is to be the first one to write a review or post about an event. For the first run of Avenue Q, I probably published the first review ever: Avenue Q High on Sept 7, 2007. I got a lot of hits for this and that is why I’m watching on the opening night of Avenue Q: The Final Run. Also, you will be the star if you can participate in the chit chat and buzz about Avenue Q’s opening night.

    This is the best musical broadway show that I’ve ever seen since Rent in Manila.”

    4. OAP is selling the best value tickets for the opening night of Avenue Q’s Final Run!

    5. It is the best Happy Father’s Day gift you can ever give this 2008!
    Manila celebrates Father’s Day on the Third Sunday of June. Tickets to Avenue Q will be the best gift you can ever give this 2008. If you are away from Manila, you can purchase online and let me know if it is a gift so that we can personally wrap it with your greetings. Please specify it in your order above in the comments/ special delivery instructions.

    “Look out for the wonderful performances that make you pause and think “am I reacting to the puppet or the actor?”,

    the darn good singing from most of the cast (a few weak links won’t spoil the broth except for the overly picky),
    moments of feeling transported back to childhood/young adulthood/actually most of life’s roller coaster

    moments throughout the show, and laughter that won’t stop till that last encore.”

    1. Gosh I wish I were in Manila, I’d watch Avenue Q again!=)
      I totally agree with you that Avenue Q and Rent are the best and most memorable shows they’ve produced in Manila=)
      I watched Carla in Song and Dance and she was super good. But I don’t know if it will be the same without Rachel. I’m glad I got to watch her=)

    2. Talaga? Its Singapore Rep, who is producing the show in Singapore? My friend told me she read somewhere online that it will be Atlantis who will produce… too bad, i was looking forward pa naman that maybe some of the original cast will go to Singapore also to play parts (trekkie? hehehe.) Yeah, wondering why Rachel was change from the original cast, just curious… 🙂

    3. I have already bought tickets for June 19 at TicketWorld… sayang sana dito na lang sa OAP. Can’t wait to see the play…

    4. This is great! I wasn’t able to catch the last 2 runs of Avenue Q! Already booked for the 14th… thanks to you Anton. I’m excited 😀

    10. hello anton! just wanna know when i can expect my tickets? Bought them here sunday morning. 2 tickets june 14. thanks.

    11. Hi, I’ve heard about Avenue Q; is it only showing in RCBC? Incidentally, I’ve never been there. Anyway. I will only be in Manila til May 21; is there a show on the 20th or 19th? Thanks!

      Thanks!
      Bless

    14. hi anton! i actually emailed already but decided to post here (just to make sure)
      i would like to get either the bal0 and ba11 tix or the e4 and e5 tix. how much are the balcony tix/ orchestra side if i pay directly at your bpi account? thanks!

    15. from what i heard…rachel was replaced ’cause she had the artistic director wait for her to come back from the states to give him her answer as to whether or not she’d do avenue q again…which meant atlantis probably just couldn’t wait for her—but then again…FROM WHAT I HEARD…

    16. ive seen avenue q twice – once each on its first two runs. i definitely wouldnt miss its final run here in manila. even if that means i’ll have to watch it alone haha 😀 i know i will miss rachel alejandro’s performance, but i’m confident that carla laforteza will be just as amazing portraying lucy and kate.

    17. hey anton! forgive my “duh” question… but is there a dress code for the show, especially on the 14th? or can just come in jeans? thanks
