In the past, the "Clue Crew" from the hit TV show visited Broadway productions to tape a series of clues and answers concerning various musicals. The Vegas cast of Avenue Q appeared on the show last September and the musical Avenue Q, The Lion King and Wicked were part of a "Puppetry on Broadway" category in Nov. 2005.
