    I've been watching The Pirates of Penzance this morning on Encore. (The one with Rex Smith, Linda Ronstadt, and Kevin Kline). It's a movie I've watched many times. I've also seen it onstage and I've even been in a production in High School.

    I decided to record the next showing for Jordan...I've been making him watch a bunch of musicals lately just to expose him to them, although I try to make sure it's something he would enjoy. So far his favorite has been Godspell, another huge favorite of mine.

    It just started me wondering what musicals are YOUR favorites...it can be an actual production you've seen, or a movie version.

    I've always been a huge fan of the Rogers and Hammerstein musicals! South Pacific being my perennial favorite.

    However, just lately I saw the movie "Mama Mia" and while I still don't believe Pierce Brosnan can sing, I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the show.

    Of course, I do like the music of Abba. I suppose that explains the reason.

    I have two favorites; Singing in the rain with Gene Kelly and The King and I with Yul Brenner. I just have to watch when either of them is on TV!!
