Don't know if we've done this before, but here goes:

Mine are "The Music Man" (mainly because I was concert master of the orchestra when we did the show in college), Camelot, and D*** Yankees (amazing that the filtering program here won't let me write out the name).

Also enjoyed Cats very much. Since I've moved away from the NYC area I haven't been to the theater lately, but I'll never forget the first Broadway musical I saw as a kid- Annie Get Your Gun with Ethel Merman. She had a powerhouse voice that was just incredible.

Sweeney Todd is my favorite musical. I took my daughter to see the last Broadway adaptation with the actors playing the instruments that ran a few years back. speaking of which, I just watched the Sondheim documentary that just started playing on HBO: really well worth watching.

I'm guessing you are meaning plays, and not movies?

The only musical I've seen in NYC was "The Magic Show" at the Cort. I have seen the touring show of "Cats". That was pretty cool.

Movie musicals are fine, too. Of the plays I listed earlier, I saw all of them on Broadway except for The Music Man, which I only saw on film.

I saw The Magic Show at the Cort Theater as well. I sometimes forget that it was a musical (!)

Sweeney Todd is my favorite, but I do have a special fondness for Cabaret and The Magic Show.

Yep, I saw the Magic Show at the Cort theater several times. I even have some photos I took of Doug signing stuff after the show. One day I got a ticket right at the front row. I could reach out and touch the stage if I wanted. It was great!

I forgot about Oklahoma! (And I'm a bit embarrassed since my Dad's band, "The Rodeo Rangers," did a great four part harmony version of the title song as part of their show set.)

The first live performance I ever saw was a high school production of "Brigadoon". I was 10 years old and I still remember that feeling of pure magic that was unfolding in front of me.

I am a big "Phantom of the Opera" fan. I read the book, own the soundtrack and DVD, and had the pleasure of seeing Michael Crawford perform it live.

"West Side Story" is up there too.

I despise modern musicals. I'd rather get a root canal than go see "The Lion King".

The old stuff--Gilbert and Sullivan, Rogers and Hammerstein--gives me great pleasure, but I don't have a favorite. Andrew Lloyd Weber gives me chills, shakes, and bouts of severe nausea. I haven't literally thrown up yet, but don't test me. *shudder*

Here are the Rodeo Rangers circa 1958. They were a show band who played throughout New Jersey in just about every type of venue you could think of- including on the roofs of the refreshment buildings at drive-in movies just before the movies started at dusk. I wish you could have heard their four part harmony version of "Oklahoma!" and other standards like "Goody Goody."

My dad sang and played fiddle. I'll let you guess which one he is in the picture.

Of the more recent ones I really liked "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." I always have a hard time picking a favorite anything.

He's definitely the second from the left. I can see a resemblance. Like a face in a book.
