And fie on whomever let Avenue Q hit the stage without throwing the author down a case of stairs. Same can be said for authors of Taboo, and a goodly number of other charlatans masquerading as musical theatre writers these last twenty some years. It's not all bad, for instance RAGTIME , and more recently CURTAINS (which I really enjoyed)... but God help most of them.
