It doesn’t suck to be Avenue Q. The show is almost certainly the second longest running Dallas production in history; it started in June for a planned four-week run; that was soon extended to 10 weeks and now, with a just-announced extension to Dec. 9, will have run 23 weeks before closing — second only to another T3 show, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, which ran more than two years after its initial opening.
Theatre 3 is promising that this extension of Avenue Q will be its last. And we believe them. Why? Because T3 has already announced another show in the downstairs Theatre Too’s 99-seat auditorium …. the latest revival of I Love You, You’re Perfect.
The very gay show — which included the 51-year-old theater’s first float in Dallas’ Pride Parade, a kind of wedding processional for its two gay characters — won awards from the Dallas-Fort Worth Theater Critics Forum last month.
The first performance of the extension, on Nov. 2, will kick off with a sing-along version. Come on… you know the Internet is for porn.
