“Fantasies Come True” – Avenue Q
Music and Lyrics: Robert Lopez & Jeff Marx
Fantasies came true when Sesame Street premiered on this day in 1969, a TV series which has been teaching children life lessons for decades as it is still running today. In this brilliant parody with lessons designed for adults, humans and puppets living in New York struggle to get by and deal with the harsh realities of life. Closeted homosexual Rod revels in the idea that his roommate Nicky reciprocates his feelings in this beguiling number while the romantically-involved Kate Monster and Princeton realize their fantasies may be coming true as well.
