This should be a pretty good one. . .

What's your favorite musical (or musicals)???

For me:

Rent
Camelot
Aspects of Love
West Side Story

just to name a few. . . there are more. . . but I want to know what all of you like!!!

Les Miserables

...'can you hear the people sing'...

and of course the Sound of Music - better on stage than movie even.

Hmmm . . . RENT has to be my favorite because there is so much truth in it. Then it would have to be Phantom of the Opera. No, not just because of Michael Crawford but who couldn't listen to him sing for hours?

There are just way too many to pick!! This isn't fair!! Ok, I also like Carousel and the Pajama Game.

That's it for now.

Does "Pink Floyd- The Wall" count?

Hey K. . . I always wondered about "The Hills are alive. . . " lol  

LW, you'll notice that I said "Musical (or Musicals)". . . so, don't limit yourself. . .

Allan, yes "The Wall" does count. . .and it's one of mine as well. . .

Dopey. . . leave it to you to say "Grease"!!

Guys and Dolls
West Side Story
Les Miserables (couldn't get that score out of my head for weeks)
... in fact, there are many scores that I adore that are not necessarily derived from a favorite musical. The Secret Garden, for one (namely "Come to my Garden")
Anyway...
Into the Woods
Rocky Horror

Sven,

I'm not limiting myself . . . so let's see I forgot to mention No No Nanette, Rocky Horror (we must have watched that one a million times, huh?)and how could I ever forget Jesus Christ Superstar?? I am slipping here!! LOL. Ok, that's all for this time.

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

I saw Michael Crawford in concert once. I thought I was going to marry the man from age 12-16. I might still consider it if he asked me lol

Ok, isn't this pathetic.. I am a teenager and just saw West Side Story for the first time a few weeks ago. I would have to say that West Side Story is my favorite musical.

I never thought that you would ever be the one to let me down. I guess that just goes to show how wrong I always am.

It's about an American and a girl in Saigon falling in love during the Vietnam war.

LI'L ABNER!!!

Ok, not really, but that's been the best for me as a performer, with Grease a close second.

I like West Side Story, definently, along with Phantom of the Opera, Evita, and The King and I.
