I can't choose between RENT, A Chorus Line, or Les Miserables.
...I cry every time that I've seen RENT.
But there is a new play that open on Broadway called 'BARE: A Pop Opera'... It looks like it will take me back to my high school experience, and I wanna go see it.
I hear BARE is kinda neat, but haven't seen it.
I'm not a musical fan.. Although Music Man is kinda neat .. and Phantom of the Opera and Grease are cool too.
im not gonna share my opinion on rent cause i got flamed last time i did but whatever floats your boat. I'm conceptualizing Broadway as any musical that has been in a theater district of a major city.
For me, I have to say there are many. I liked aida, and as i look back i enjoyed phantom even though i was a bit disappointed at first.
Jerry springer the opera was interesting as well.
Phantom of the Opera is my favorite just because of the songs. I saw Miss Saigon and thought it sucked. I've never really had many opportunities to see musicals.
Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. Can't decide between the two which is my favorite.
...I promise not to flame... Everyone has a right to an opinion, sooo...?
I didn't like Phantom of the Opera at all.
I thought the story sucked... and the music was marginal.
But, then again, I'm not a huge fan of Andrew Lloyd Webber
Yeah, it's one of those ones were you either love it or you hate it.
Oh, I've seen Beauty and the Beast on Broadway as well.
My fiance and I are honeymooning in NYC, at the end of February.
We were talking about seeing "Moving Out" and "Rent"
Which one would be better? And, is there something else we should check out instead?
I'm not really into theatre, but she was a dancer in college and loves the theatre, so I am taking her to a show. Since I am going, she has agreed to let me "help" her decide on what to see. I want something kind of upbeat, fun and easy to watch. Nothing like Phantom, Les Mis, but more along the lines of West Side Story.
Am I way off base? I don't know shit about Broadway theatre
i've seen Cats.. wasn't too fond of singing, gymnatic, jungle creatures.. but my aunt is taking me to see Rent sometime in march.. hopefully that will be a better experience. just as a sidenote.. i've seen the play Leading Ladies.. quite an experience.. full of laughs.
Man, I hated that musical.
But, then again, I don't like cats... so singing cats wouldn't really do a hell of a lot for me anyway.
Well, West Side Story is fun, but depressing in the end. Still, it's got some great songs you know, and some cool dance stuff for her.
OKLAHOMA is always good. Also, songs you'll know, good dancing.
I'm not sure what else is playing. I'm told "The Producers" is a hilarious play/musical, but I'm not sure if it has dancing.
Cats is the worst.
I liked Cats.
Memory. All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days,
I was beautiful then.
I remember the time I knew what happiness was,
Let the memory live again. ...Daylight. I must wait for the sunrise,
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in.
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin....Touch me. It's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun.
If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is.
Look, a new day has begun.
I love Andrew Lloyd Webber. Of course that means Cats, Phantom of the Opera, and Starlight Express are in my list of must-sees. Also loved the Producers.
My favorite? Hairspray! Being from the Baltimore/Annapolis area makes it a little more personal for me. It was so cute, and funny... best time I've ever had at a Broadway show.
The only one I haven't liked? Rent. I did not like the show at all. Not to mention the theatre in NYC is gross, by far the worst theatre I've been to.
I haven't seen it on Broadway, but West Side Story isn't exactly upbeat.
Thanks, Sam. I know she would like West Side Story (she played Maria in college) and I will look into "The Producers"
I've seen it and wouldn't mind sitting through it. Of course, I haven't seen it done professionally though. Might be kind of cool
Thanks to all for the thread and suggestions
does ANNIE count???
that was my favorite growing up
I liked Phantom of the Opera
I wanna watch:
Lion King - lotsa people say its really really good
Sure it is.
Officer Krupke is a hilarious song.
I feel pretty is cute
America is really funny.
Cool is, well... cool!
It ends sad, for sure. But, it's got a lot of great songs... About 90% of it is hopeful and upbeat!
Prior to seeing Anger Management, I would often hum 'I feel pretty'... But I luved the choreography in 'America'.
Yup... most definitely.
