If I Were Gay
After the previous night's offenses, I decided to go with subject matter more fun. I LOVE the muppets. I'm passionate and I'm obsessed with them. When Ave Q came out, I made sure not to miss it. Happily, a friend and I lucked into front row lottery seats the year it debuted. For some shows, the front row sucks--it hurts your neck and the singers might accidently spit on you. This was a great spot. As far as design goes, I tried to have the puppeteers look just a little bit more like Bert and Ernie than the puppets could--for legal reasons. These don't look like the original puppets from Ave Q either, but they'd fit the roles.
The value structure is still way off, and I think the negative space around the characters is not greatly organized, but I liked the designs and the colors well enough to continue after bombing on The Pajama Game. Rebuilding confidence.
