If You Were Gay - Avenue Q

If You Were Gay

"If You Were Gay" is a song from the Broadway musical Avenue Q, written by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. We decided to create a page of videos of the song because it's very funny and because so many people have created great fanvids based on it.

Our page starts out with performances of "If You Were Gay" by the Original Broadway Cast, the London West End cast and the Australia cast (unless they've been deleted by YouTube.) It then moves to the fanvids created for the song, some of which are extremely well done. All of the fanvids are based on the original cast recording and sung by John Tartaglia (Rod) and Rick Lyon (Nicky). The photo on the right is from the 2009/2010 Off-Broadway production, with Seth Rettberg (Rod) and Cullen Titmus (Nicky).

Our favorite fanvid is the Merlin & Arthur version. If you only watch one of these, be sure to try that one.

Avenue Q was initially developed at the 2002 National Music Theatre Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Connecticut. It was then produced by and opened at the Off-Broadway Vineyard Theatre in March 2003. The production transferred to Broadway in July 2003, ran for over six years, and won several Tony Awards, including the award for Best Musical. The show spawned a 2005 Las Vegas production, a 2006 West End production and various international productions. An Australian national tour began in June 2009 and will end in June 2010. The show is currently playing Off-Broadway again at New World Stages.
