Some in-laws need speed knots upside the head and a serious beat down

For some reason, any Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals I never cared for, ex: Phantom & Cats...but I *DID* love Jesus Christ Superstar & went on to be in it. Also, not ALW, but I also got to play in Godspell. For both, I was Mary Magdalene. She is probably one of the first century's Jewish believers I felt very drawn to her story. Because she was forgiven much, she loved her Rabbi Yeshua (Jesus' name in Hebrew) with all of her heart.

And yes, I love Fiddler on the Roof! Man from La Mancha, Sound of Music, West Side Story, Romeo & Juliet (Franco Zeffirelli's version).

I am impressed by your experience in the performing arts!

How sweet!

Yep, old theater and chorus geek here-16 years of community theater. It must be why I'm so nuts about Pentatonix! #choirgeeks :mrgreen:

Oh, and although I don't think they classify as musicals, Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" and Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" are favorites...plus, who can forget Les Miserables! :!:

I think Romeo and Juliet may be fifty years old this year or next. I saw it for the first time in 1980 in the student theater at my college with a bunch of my friends and roommates. So many tears! We just kept hoping it would end...differently...somehow. :lol: I agree that the FZ version is by far the best and whenever I think of Juliet, I picture Olivia Hussey.

This is so UN- PC but I wanted to share because DH and I have been laughing about "The French Mistake" days after we showed one of our children "Blazing Saddles":

Oye! Mel Brooks movies.

I don't even think of those as musicals, but I guess they are. History of the World Part 1 is definitely one of the best satirical musicals around. And of course, The Producers. I actually prefer the Nathan Lane / Matthew Broderick version.

Crossing the forum lines here but thought I might get a giggle. We recently saw "Mary Poppins" and DH then started calling stepmonster Mary Poppins. Finally I said, "WTF?"

DH explained that Mary Poppins does a lot of magic. She also sings about how, "Just a Spoon Full of Sugar helps the "Medicine" go down.".

So now I see it and agree, Stepmonster is much like Mary Poppins - She's a witch that likes to drug people!
