News   Broadway's Avenue Q Gets "A Little Bit Racist" for "The View," Sept. 26 The cast of Broadway's Avenue Q will appear on ABC's "The View," Sept. 26 at 11 AM (ET). Check your local listings.

The cast will perform the catchy and slightly offensive song "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist" for the gals on the show.

Avenue Q sends up popular children's television shows such as "Sesame Street" and "The Electric Company," while serving up a bounty of pop culture references and solving the mystery of the whereabouts of former "Diff'rent Strokes" child star Gary Coleman. The production bears the warning: "Full puppet nudity, not suitable for children."

The musical, lauded by audiences and critics alike, officially opened on Broadway July 31 following previews from July 11. The staging came off a successful run at Off Broadway's Vineyard Theatre, where it sold out and garnered the 2003 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical.

The original Broadway cast recording of Avenue Q, will be released by Victor, Oct. 7. The CD is perhaps the first Broadway musical cast album to brandish a parental advisory sticker which warns of "explicit content" including "strong language" and "sexual content."
