Win tickets to Avenue Q at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre
I mentioned Avenue Q is coming to Dublin back in August of last year and now it’s less than a week before the show starts (April 3 to 7) and here they are in a quick interview with me and your chance to win tickets to Friday night’s show!
I met Daniella Gibb (Kate Monster), Sam Lupton (Rod) and Chris Thatcher (Nicky) down at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre (y’know… at Grand Canal Dock) where we had the chat. Can’t watch the video? Here’s an MP3 of it:
Not sure what I can tell you about Avenue Q that you mightn’t already know.
It’s a musical about a kid called Princeton who moves to the avenue and decides to find his purpose in life. There he meets various characters, humans and monsters alike, who entertain, sing, dance and play. It’s ridiculously good natured with great songs and numbers and I’m looking forward to seeing it again. For the fourth time.
After nearly five years of mischief, bad behaviour and political incorrectness, London’s funniest show by far is hitting the road. Hilarious and uproariously entertaining, with a terrific batch of songs performed by a cast of hugely talented performers and puppets, Avenue Q is the musical like no other.
This Tony Award – winning irresistibly charming musical is about the lovably hopeless characters on a downtown New York street trying to make sense of life’s burning issues: love, work, relationships and, above all, how are you supposed to pay the bills with a BA in English?
This show is NOT recommended for under 12s. Show contains very strong language and sexual content.
Book your tickets here. Don’t let your life suck. Ahem.
I’ll also point out that if you’re a member of the Bord Gáis Rewards Club, you can get two tickets for €50 – normally €88 in a flash sale running until Friday.
As per their email today:
The Bord Gáis Rewards Club have very kindly given me two pairs of tickets to give away for next Friday night, April 6 at 8.30pm. Just stick a comment below to be in with a chance to win them. I’ll pick the winner on Wednesday, April 4 at random and drop them an email. Telling me how much you want to go MIGHT help.
Thanks to Daniella, Sam and Chris for their time, and to Eoin and to Ruth for all their help with the interview and competition.
And just because I can:
