Favorite plays or musicals?
« on: March 20, 2018, 04:51:30 pm »
I’m a huge theatre fan, so I thought it would be fun to talk about favorites with other people.

My favorite musical is either In The Heights, or The Great Comet of 1812.

My favorite play is one I saw off-Broadway called Homos, Or Everyone In America.

The Crucible is one of my favorites! I wanted to see the Broadway production of it a couple years ago, but I didn’t get the chance to go to it.

I saw a local production of The King And I a while ago. I enjoyed it!

I used to live up near Stratford where they do a lot of good Shakespeare stuff, which was nice, now I'm closer to Plymouth and they do a lot of new, quirky plays and musicals whereas I prefer the older or heavier stuff... I guess if I got myself to London more often I'd be up for that, it's just finding the time.

I was in community theater twice and enjoyed it.
In one I was a butler in a play called "But Why Bump Off Barnaby" and the other I was a flamboyant interior decorator in "Move Over Mrs Markham." That second one though, boy was that one fun.

Otherwise, talking on a grander scale I am a big fan of Phanotom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Man of La Mancha as far as musicals go.

Ooooooo. I saw Cirque Du Soleil, Mystere in Las Vegas on New Years ever of 2009 going into 2010. That was a fun memory. I bought the soundtrack CD after it and still have it. Really fun and cool to see.
Rocky Horror is a good choice as well  :eusa_clap:

I can't stand musicals with Grease being the only exception.

Les Mis, Oklahoma, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Pirates of Penzance, The King and I, Cats (in the theatre, not the cinema!) come to mind immediately; I'm sure there are others!

I wasn't particularly keen on Phantom of the Opera or Miss Saigon... I should have missed Saigon.

Okay, I missed the necro action on this one when I was pouting at the beginning of the year, so I'll repeat the crime.  First of all, Jenny, no musicals?!  You're dead to me.  ;)

Listing a bunch of popular Broadway stuff, for common language.

I find most older musicals pretty intolerable to watch, and when I thought that's what all musicals were, I thought I hated them too, then college came and I roomed with a lot of musical theatre peeps, which opened my eyes (in a lot of ways).

Stagehanded a production of Sweeney Todd in college, so Sondheim is a nostalgic favorite of mine in general. 

Les Miserables, always wanted to sing like Eponine, but unfortunately had a voice suited for the innkeeper, at best.

Rent is dated now, but I loved it at the time (I got to see it in it's La Jolla Playhouse days with Neil Patrick Harris *swoon*), and my wife and I would break out in random singalongs to "La Vie Boheme", when we weren't singing "We Both Reached for the Gun" from Chicago.  God, I so wanted to be CZJ as Velma Kelly from the movie version.

Wicked was fun, especially for my wife, the nutty Oz fan.

I thought I would hate it, since everyone was going on about it, but saw Hamilton on Broadway and definitely an all time favorite... still can sing every word.

Also found the Book of Mormon pretty charming.  I can find a lot of reasons any given day to sing "Hasa Diga Eebowai".

Thenardier is probably the most fun role in Les Mis though!

In The Heights is dope. I saw it over the summer. Hamilton is next (even though I've listed to the soundtrack a hundred times already).

Hamilton is awesome.  Some other musicals I've enjoyed: Little Shop of Horrors, Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, West Side Story, Chicago.  Ummm. Non-musicals: Death of a Salesman, Streetcar Named Desire, The Crucible, Our Town.  Classics: Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Oedipus Rex, Midsummer Night's Dream.
