Avenue Q's Nicky and Rod tackle some of the best-known Coverboy Confidential questions


Last Friday, July 16, in the lobby of the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Lansburgh Theatre, Yusef Najafi sat down with Nicky and Rod, two of the stars of Avenue Q – and their counterparts Michael Liscio Jr. and Brent Michael DiRoma – and posed several of Metro Weekly‘s more infamous Coverboy Confidential questions. Among them, “What’s on your nightstand?,” “Where’s the most unusual place you’ve had sex?,” “Define good in bed,” and “What position do you play in the big baseball game of life?” Stick around through the end credits for an in-your-face surprise.
