    I REALLY wish I had seen The Producers in a theatre. But I've seen the movie, and own the soundtrack and the DVD. (After I've seen the movie and after I bought the DVD, I was steaming milk at work going, "Springtime for Hitler and Germany . . . "

    I also own Rent and Chicago on DVD.

  6. I love musicals... I don't think I could list all that I've seen with the times that I've seen them because there are too many! I usually have a few trips to nyc a year and see most of what comes to Chicago, depending on if I liked it on Bway or not.

    Some of my favorites have been Rent, which I saw more times than I can count on my hands and toes, lol, bway, chicago, across the country... ridiculous amounts back in the beginning of it. The producers with Lane & Broderick was so much fun! I went twice with them, the second time my friend and I literally spent two entire days on the phone trying to get through, one time waiting on hold until 4am... they were fab. the movie is entertaining but they were just so hilarious on stage together... not as great in the odd couple though, unfortunately. Spamalot was hilarious too. And Wicked has been in Chicago for over a year now so I've seen that a few times now and I have loved it.


    I also see lots of local theater, while Chicago doesnt have quite as many as nyc, I think we have the second most and there is always something good to see!
     
  7. I love Musicals! I just bought a book of piano music to famous musical songs and I have now mastered Les Miserables :wlae: My favourite has to be The Phantom of the Opera though becuase I have fond memories of dressing up when I was a little girl and watching it at the theatre, it was magical.
     
  8. Oh! I forgot to mention, I've seen Les Miserables twice in London.

  12. I don't thinking there is a musical I don't like. I love them all.
     
  13. I was around 8, 9, 10 . . . something like that. My dad's side of the family is English, so we'd go there for family events. My parents would tell my uncle what play we wanted to see and he'd get us the tickets.

  15. I'm not a huge fan of musicals, but the DH took me to Cats and Jesus Christ Superstar several years ago. One time, totally by a weird series of people that couldn't use the tickets, we got to see Miss Saigon. OMG, I bawled like a baby at the end!! And the effects of the helicopter when Saigon was being evacuated still gives me goose bumps.

    The DH is a huge fan of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. I don't care for them myself, but I've gone to a couple, though G&S purists will tell you straight away that they ARE NOT MUSICALS! I don't care for them, so what do I know?:shrugs:
