The Cosmo Bachelor Bash… NOT!


I’m sure a lot of you are itching to know what happened at the Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash last night at the NBC Tent, right?

So there I was, preparing to go… until I was presented with free tickets to the newest musical in town: AVENUE Q! It’s obvious that I can do the craziest thing, and I did: ditched my Cosmo hunks and went straight away to RCBC Plaza for the Press Preview of Avenue Q! (weird ko no?)


Pop singer and recording artist Rachel Alejandro, last seen on stage as Mimi in RENT, plays the dual role of Kate Monster and Lucy the Slut, award winning singer/actress Aiza Seguerra plays Gary Coleman, Star In A Million champion Frenchie Dy plays Christmas eve, theatre singer Felix Rivera plays Princeton and Rod, theatre actor Rick Everley plays Brian, theatre veteran Joel Trinidad plays Trekkie Monster, Nicky and others and Teenee Chan plays Mrs. Thistletwat and others.


AVENUE Q, the phenomenally inventive musical that combines people and puppets, is about real life. It’s about finding a job, losing a job, learning about racism, getting an apartment, getting kicked out of your apartment, being different, falling in love, promiscuity, avoiding commitment, hangovers, Internet porn and discovering the world. It has music and lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez and a book by Jeffy Whitty. It won three Tony Awards in 2004 including Best Musical. AVENUE Q is directed by Bobby Garcia and Chari Arespacochaga, Sets and Costumes by Mio Infante, Lighting Design by Jay Aranda and Puppet Design and Execution by Samuel Fuentes and Marvin Choa based on Rick Lyons original Broadway designs.

The musical’s treatment was very light given the real issues it tackled were very adult ones (homosexuality, racism, life purpose, porn, etc.). Para siyang Sesame Street with adult themes! Oh I really enjoyed it! Rachel Alejandro’s voice was perfect for the 2 roles she played (Katie Monster and Lucy the Slut), and Felix Rivera also did a great job playing 2 roles too: as the lead puppet character (Princeton), and as the gay puppet character (Rod).

Go watch!
