What’choo talkin’ about Willis?

Child star Gary Coleman died recently at the age of 42. The BBC announced yesterday that there won’t even be a funeral service for him. Now I know he was a nasty piece or work and those behavioural issues were probably caused by him only being 140cm tall, but 42 is still too young to die of a brain haemorrhage.

But what I really want to know about is what is happening to the script of west end musical Avenue Q?

The show never stops lampooning Gary Coleman – who is a character in the musical – for his failure to achieve anything after his child stardom other than cleaning toilets and collecting reant. So have they changed the show in any way, or even acknowledged that the character the audience is laughing at is now dead?
