A vote for Phantom of the Opera here...seen it 4 times!!!
This is closely followed by Oliver/Mama Mia....tough call to pick a preference.
And would you believe I've never seen that one.Originally Posted by Tinker, post: 102807
Loved Chicago on stage, still not so sure about the movie.
Well, I don't much like musicals at all, but do like:
Fiddler on the Roof
Jesus Christ Superstar
That's really about it! LOL!
OH! Love Love Love Moulin Rouge! Once you get over how different it is, it's wonderful.Originally Posted by lisaw, post: 102791
Love Phantom. Finally got to see it onstage a couple of years ago....SOOOOOO good. Movie isn't bad, either.Originally Posted by Slowhand, post: 102801
Sound of Music is another I've been in...at the community theater where I grew up. Stage production is so very different than the movie...though I do love it.Originally Posted by Tinker, post: 102807
See why I'm making all of you pick number ones?! Impossible for me.
Although Pippin and Jesus Christ Superstar hold very high places in my heart.
I've not seen many musicals, as I don't much care for them. So that is part of the reason I have a short list. :D (I do love operas though. They are the original musicals, no)? :D :D
I forgot CATS, I saw it live and it was wonderful
I have to say that my favorite has always been Into the Woods.
But I have a collection of musicals that is miles long. I love and adore them and 90% of the time I have music playing it is a musical. I can't even begin to make a list because it would be pages long. I miss being in them and I hope that one of these days I can go back and do some community theater again.
I am currently being a bit obsessed with Wicked and Bye Bye Birdie.
Les Mis & Phantom were early favorites.
Mama Mia became an obsession of mine for several years (see it on stage NOT at the movies!)
Spamalot holds a dear place (first show I ever took my children to see)
The music of Spring Awakening is PHENOMONAL.
Wicked. :D :D I've never even seen it and it's a favorite. Just found out yesterday one of my parents is a set designer :D Johnie and I have been invited backstage in March :D :D :D :D :D
