I love musicals. Hairspray was great. I also saw Avenue Q, The Boy from Oz and Chicago.

As soon as I can drive (January) I'm going to get some friends and drive to NYC and hang out there for a weekend. We'd see avenue q and just see what there is to see. That's assuming my parents let me, and their parents let them, which won't happen.

The Producers is truly the king of all stage musicals.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I've seen a few of the more famous musicals in the past few years. Loved Phantom of the Opera, course. And my other favorites were Les Miserables and The Lion King (for once you don't make my ears bleed, Elton John). Beauty and the Beast was pretty good. Cats was just messed up. And I walked out of Hairspray.

Okay. With the exception of Jesus Christ Superstar, Andrew Lloyd Webber annoys the friggin' bejeezus out of me. He just ... he tries too hard to showcase his insane musical genius by including every instrument known to man in as many songs as he can do so with, and it ends up sounding cluttered to me. I've tried his other musicals, like Phantom and Cats, and I cannot listen to them all the way through without wincing from his rampant need to show off.

Les Mis is awesome.

I thought Lion King was very good and unique. Love the Lebo M. stuff. [I think that's his name, can someone confirm that?]

Also, for shame ... no one mentioned Rent. The rock opera, not the damn movie that went off into who knows where. Rent was fantastic.

Buffy's "Once More, With Feeling" was pretty excellent as well. :D

Yeah, it's Lebo M. (http://lebom.com/king.html) Besides the music, I even really appreciated the costuming. It's not something I normally notice, but the it just really stood out this time.

I'm not a A.L.Weber fan either, but I don't know how you couldn't like Phantom of the Opera. Even the movie adaptation was good. It helped me understand the story better, as it is sometimes difficult to show certain things on a stage.

Hah, then there was Fiddler on the Roof. I saw that like ages ago, and the only thing that I still remember is that my family went with our Jewish neighbors, and they were offended that the song "If I Were a Rich Man" furthered jewish stereotypes. Some people...I tell ya'.
