An interview with members of the Avenue Q national tour: Kerri Bracken, Julianna Lee and Jacqueline Grabois
It was an hour before their call for the evening performance of Avenue Q when cast members Jacqueline Grabois (Kate Monster and Lucy the Slut), Kerri Bracken (Mrs. T. and one of the two Bad Idea Bears), and ensemble member Julianna Lee, who performed the role of Christmas Eve when I saw the show on opening night, sat down with me in their dressing room.
After a year on the road, all three reflect on their roles, auditions, “Puppet Camp”, and pay homage to their furry friends. Jacqueline finally gets revenge on her Mrs. T.-like teacher from hell, and they all talk about missing that “important call”. Julianna and Jacqueline also talk about their songs, “The More You Ruv Someone” and “There’s a Fine, Fine Line”.
We had a great time, and hope you will too.
Avenue Q plays through August 15th at Lansburgh Theatre, 450 7th Street NW, in Washington, DC. For tickets call their box office (202) 547-1122.
