I love musicals and I’ve seen a few on Broadway
hairspray
Mama Mia
The music man (it was the only one could see when I was like 7)
Off Broadway in NY
alter boyz (has anyone seen this musical its soooooo funny)
In texas (where I live)
rent and others that I can't think of rent was the most recently.

Everyone in my family loooves musicals and plays (for mother’s day we got my mom tickets to jersey boys) and my dad loves them to which I find funny

but I was wondering if anyone had seen the play the 39 steps it looks really funny to me and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what they thought of it.

ps. we just did a production of thoroughly modern Millie at my school it was soooooo fun. I loved it. (lighted the show as a freshman!)
pps. Sorry this was so obnoxiously long. :oops:
Is it weird that it still surpries me every time I open one of my stephenie meyer books to find it signed even thought I was there when it happened?

Ahhhh, I'd LOVE to go to Broadway one day. <3 To see an actual show THERE. (:

I saw Phantom of the Opera the other week and oh my god it was just amazing. I was so engrossed.
I really wish I got to see Rent. It's one of my all time favourite movies, and the music from it is amazing. I'd also love to see Hairspray on Broadway. :mrgreen:

I'm so in love with Broadway, and just musical theatre in general!

I haven't seen anything in NYC, but lots of shows tour Seattle. RENT, Hairspray, Annie, Little Women, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Wedding Singer (this was so good, I don't know why it didn't make it long on Broadway), Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Sweet Charity, Spelling Bee, The Light in the Piazza, Wicked, and Jersey Boys. I also saw Jersey Boys a second time down in LA, and Wicked a second time when it stopped by Olympia for one night.

Shows I've been in throughout school are Hello, Dolly!, Once On This Island, and three Night of Musical Theatre's, which are review shows of broadway music. I also did an operetta last year called Patience [or Bunthorne's Bride].

Right now I'm in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. My best friend and I were both singing soprano in the wives/sisters/whatever chorus, but there ended up not being enough men to fill the brothers rolls, so we're now crossing over to play soprano brothers (lol).... But it all works since the show was written for a boys choir?

Pretty soon I'll be auditioning for Guys & Dolls, and in choir I believe we're doing music from Hair this quarter.

Some of my favourite musicals are: The Wedding Singer, Songs For A New World, Legally Blonde, Jekyll & Hyde, Hairspray, Wicked, Jersey Boys, Aida, RENT, The Last 5 Years, & Little Women

:( RENT closes in three days.

On a happier note, I get to see Avenue Q in 22 days with a friend! It's the original Broadway cast!!

Well, I've only seen Beauty and the Beast and Phantom of the Opera live, but it wasn't on Broadway.

My drama club is going to see Wicked in January (UUUBER EXCITED!!!)

But I've seen RENT, Chicago, Sweeney Todd, Phantom, Hairspray, Jekyll & Hyde, My Fair Lady, and there might be more that I just can't remember.

Oh, The Newsies. I don't know if that's considered a musical or not, though...

I love all things Broadway, but RENT REIGNS SUPREME.

I saw the touring cast last November and it was AMAZING. *sigh*

They are releasing a live, recorded version of the broadway cast in a few weeks, and I'm pretty excited about it:

I love Avenue Q. It's the funniest thing I've ever seen. My best friend and I sing It Sucks To Be Me a bit.

I also like Wicked, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and RENT (all-time-favorite).

She's not lying. Adam Pascal will be there too.

I just LOVE musicals...most of the ones I've seen were at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, but I've also seen one in Toronto at the Royal Alexandria Theatre, and one on Broadway:

Grease (twice, NAC)
Ragtime (NAC)
Phantom of the Opera (twice, NAC)
Wicket (NAC)
Mamma Mia (RA)
The Color Purple (Broadway...this was such an amazing experience!)

I really really REALLY want to see Chicago, Rent, and Les Miserables...here's keeping my fingers crossed they either tour my way or I find a large bundle of cash to take me to Broadway.
