Avenue Q Wiki

Lucy the Slut

Lucy the Slut is one of the characters from the musical Avenue Q. Even though she has a minor role in the show, she is probably one of the most well-known characters from the show.

The sultry cabaret singer first appears singing her song Special in the Around the Clock Cafe, drawing attention from the men in the crowd, including Princeton, Trekkie, Brian, Rod, Nicky, and Gary. After her set, she tries to seduce Princeton while Kate is at the bar getting drinks for the two of them. Kate and Lucy have a bit of a catfight in the bar until Princeton stops it and Lucy leaves.

The next time we see Lucy, she is sauntering through the streets and gets picked up by a recently-single-depressed-and-unemployed Princeton. They have a one-night stand and afterwards, she crumples a note from Kate inviting the two of them to get back together before Princeton can read it. Lucy leaves Princeton's apartment and he chases her down asking why she left and where she went. ("Aw man, why do I always get the clingy guys?") She goes on to tell him how he is not special and never will be. Karma then strikes when Princeton's lucky penny (thrown by Kate in a fit of anger off the top of the Empire State Building) strikes Lucy on the head, breaking her neck and causing her head to fall off in the ambulance. She has a near death experience in the hospital, but is saved by a heavenly choir. She emerges a born-again Christian and takes a vow of chastity before marriage.

Lucy bears similarities to Jessica Rabbit from the 1988 hybrid film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.
