Avenue Q connection
28 January 2006 | by sarahugheySee all my reviews

Johnny (aka John Tartaglia) was in the Broadway cast of Avenue Q. avenueq.com it's a hilarious Sesame Street-meets-real life (plus Gary Coleman) show.

I just found it funny that a guy who is on the Disney channel was in such a risqué Broadway show.

Not that there's anything at all wrong with that, I think both are entertaining in their own ways, I'v got kids, so they're big JatS fans, but now I won't be able to stop giggling thinking of Avenue Q.

With songs like "The Internet is for Porn", "Everyone's a little bit racist", "My Girlfriend (who lives in Canada)", and "If You Were Gay" playing in your head, it makes watching an innocent Disney show weird.
