Tasteless but Burning Question For Our Time
Posted by Jill | 8:12 PM
So....what happens to Avenue Q now? See why I ask around 2:35 in:

Jeff Marx, co-creator of the show, explains:
Jeff Marx, who conceived the Broadway musical Avenue Q with Robert Lopez, called up EW to remember Gary Coleman, and discuss some of the changes they would instill in their show, which boasts a character named for the late actor. “It’s a very sad day for all of us,” Marx says. “And we’re really sorry to hear this. We all were inspired by him for many, many years.”

Marx says that the show decided to alter some of the lines in the script, since they seem “inappropriate” now, but the show will go on. Marx says Avenue Q has even planned a tribute to Coleman, which will follow Friday night’s showing at New World Stages and be headed by the actress who plays Coleman, Danielle K. Thomas. “We all grew up watching and enjoying his work, and it’s just very sad to hear.”

Hey, Jeff...Corey Feldman is still around....
