    The only way you would be able to get a video recording of Avenue Q is if someone who went to the show video taped it in the theater, which is strictly prohibited, not to mention illegal.

    I didn't think they released a DVD on this.......

    Ebay sells the occasional bootleg copy.

    I saw part of one of the bootleg copies. The first 10 minutes or so, the camera isn't even pointed at the stage! Plus, the recording was so bad, it wouldn't even play back on any of my equipment. My friend (who traded for the copy) got it to play back on something (his computer, I think). Definitely not worth it... especially since it's illegal, too!

    Yeah, but sometimes it's the only way you can see some things. I wish they would record performances and then sell them after the show closed or something for preservation's sake.

    I totally agree on that. If they did that noone would feel a need to buy illegal bootleg copies of shows in the firstplace. But in the mean time when there is no video available of shows, theres lots of people who trade them which is technically illegal but noone is losing out, actually they are gaining from it.

    Ive seen an avenue q video online somewhere and although its bad quality im off to see the show because it looked so good any chance I get and it looks like that will be in London I hope when I go there later this year.

    Is CATS the only musical they have given this treatment to? If not, what others?

    No, there's been a couple of musicals (i.e. Broadway musicals) released on video. "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" (based somewhat on Genesis 37-50 in The Bible. Pretty sure some liberties taken with Scripture here and there;)

    Also, there's "Godspell" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" (again, definitely liberties taken with The Bible- but still enjoyable to see)

    And of course, there's the 1966 musical "It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Superman"- which was aired in a TV adaptation once in 1975- and taped copies of this special now float around Ebay and the comic book conventions and such...

    They do record every show. These are all available to be seen at the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. :)

    There have been a number of Broadway theatrical shows released on DVD/VHS. Here are the ones I'm aware of:

    Into the Woods (original cast with Bernadette Peters & Joanna Gleason)
    Kiss Me, Kate (2000 Revival cast)
    Oklahoma! (Revival cast starring Hugh Jackman)
    Follies: In Concert
    Sweeney Todd in Concert
    The Producers (well...actually a documentary on the making of the cast recording)
    Putting It Together
    Crazy For You (It was aired on PBS, not sure if it was officially put on video)
    Nunsense 2
    Sister Amnesia's Country Western Nunsense Jamboree

    This sort of thing reallly isn't on. I know not everyone can see Avenue Q. Shows aren't cheap and it's only running in three cities, but this is still illegal. Cameras aren't let into theatres for a reason.

    Perhaps a sensible moderator could do something about it.

    What are you on about? the above posts are about DVDs of stuff that has been on TV kindly being offered by someone. Nothing illegal about that. You can find most stuff on youtube anyway. Definitely not an alternative of seeing the show to see a few clips of charity performances.

    I know, nothing wrong with that, but advertising for dvds of the whole show is a bit off.
