So, Mike4891 had to go and post a song from Hair here and since I didn't see any musical / play threads, I wanted to start one. Maybe there is one though - sorry if there is.

 

Something people may not know about me is that I spent about 18 years acting in the theater - plays mostly and some musicals, improv and such and so on. I've pretty much been obsessed with the theater since I was about 5 or 6 years old, but even before that I was somewhat of a performer show-off type kid. It's funny, because I'm not such an attention hog now. I guess I changed, but I still like to see plays and musicals. 

 

Anyhow, Hair was actually the first musical I ever saw at age 6 or 7 and I didn't understand 3/4 of it, but loved it anyhow. My mom did not love that I loved it as I'd launch into songs about sex and drugs in public (I had no clue back then what I was singing). 

 

There are a TON of musicals I love, but besides Hair, which is one of my top 3, my other top favorites are Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar. What's weird is I'm not remotely religious - but I just love these musicals. I especially like Carl Anderson as Judas in the movie - below... he can sing like crazy. 

 

 

Thinking up my favorite all time plays might be harder. I like most Shakespeare, but the Tempest best, Butterflies are Free, most Neil Simon, Greater Tuna and The Curious Savage best maybe. 

 

I like a ton of plays though. 

 

Anyone else here like the theater or even plays and musicals in movie-form? Any past / current actors here?

I LOVE Carl Anderson's version of Heaven On Their Minds, it's amazing - makes me wish I was a musical star. As does On My Own from Les Mis (not so fussy on who sings it). 

 

I love musicals, my masters dissertation was inspired by various ones. I saw Memphis on Broadway and that was really exciting for me so it has a special place in my heart. 

 

I saw Phantom Of The Opera when I was a kid and remember being pretty freaked out but I think it's beautiful now. Love Never Dies has some pretty cool songs too but I hate where it went.

 

Evita is full of classics. 

 

I'm going to stop because I've seen dozens and I could ramble about all of them.

 

I like plays too. Favourite Shakespeare that I've seen and not just read is probably Much Ado About Nothing. 

 

Not very original but I still find The Importance Of Being Earnest hilarious. 

 

Yasmina Reza's Art is very readable.

 

P.S. Just remembered how much fun Dirty Dancing was on stage. The end.

I love On My Own - but I haven't seen the new movie Les Mis because I'm terrified the movie will ruin that musical for me. Have you seen it?

 

Oddly I don't like Phantom - never have. I think my mom overplayed it too much when I was a kid. The Importance of Being Earnest is an excellent play.  There's a Dirty Dancing musical?!

I really want to see that, but haven't yet. It looks amazing - have you see it River? I also really horribly want to see the Tempest (directed by the gal who did Across the Universe) since it's my favorite Shakespeare - I usually shy away from movie versions of Shakespeare but both these look great. I just never have time to see movies :(

I'm a huge Jesus Christ Superstar fan myself. I have never seen it performed live in person, but I have both the film versions on DVD and have seen video of a number of stage performances.

 

My favorite musical that I have seen performed live is Little Shop of Horrors.

 

I'm kind of into musicals on film, though, ranging from the big production MGM musicals of the 40s to Repo! The Genetic Opera. My favorites: Moulin Rouge, Little Shop of Horrors, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

 

I watch a fair amount of Bollywood movies, most of which include musical numbers. Even my favorite, Sholay. A western.

 

I'll include musicals  on the small screen too, so I can include Once More With Feeling, the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I love that episode.

 

From Moulin Rouge, El Tango de Roxanne, which makes ballroom dance look pretty intense:

 

 

Holi from Sholay:

I just cannot get into Moulin Rouge. My BF's kids keep bugging me to see Repo - saying I'll love it. You sound like you like it too, so maybe I'll give it a whirl. Little Shop of Horrors is awesome and the Buffy musical too. It's crazy that a TV show could produce such as good musical - even though some of the cast weren't great singers they totally made it work for them not against.

No! And I really wanted to - it was on really limited release here so I assumed it was impossible. Imagine my distress when I actually looked it up to discover it was showing once in my city ON MY CAMPUS. The night before I looked it up. It's going on my Christmas list.

Buffy is the best thing ever, that episode was very impressive.
 
I saw Moulin Rouge at the cinema and went home and told everyone it sucked, so they didn't go. Years later I was raving about it, much to my family's annoyance.

Oddly I don't like Phantom - never have. I think my mom overplayed it too much when I was a kid. The Importance of Being Earnest is an excellent play.  There's a Dirty Dancing musical?!

 

I am a massive Hugh Jackman fan (for various reasons...) and I saw it when it came out. It's very different to seeing it on stage but I think it was an amazing achievement - all the live singing. Eddie Redmayne blew me away. I couldn't get so emotionally connected with the rest of it though - I think that happens when you are very familiar with big celebrities, takes me out of the moment somewhat.

 

I like to play Phantom stuff on my piano. My mum loves to play the CD with the volume turned up high. I thought Gerard Butler was seriously good in the film adaptation. And yes to Dirty Dancing - maybe it's only in Britain for now? It's basically the movie on stage. I adore the movie so I thought it was cool. I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it.

Much Ado? Well, I'll have to try harder to see it. For those who haven't seen the trailer check it out!

The Beatrice and Benedict casting was PERFRCT.

I like Phantom, Funny Face, Hairspray, Chicago, Nine, Moulin Rouge, Wicked, Wizard of Oz.

I hated the Le Mis musical... because I love the film version with Geoffrey Rush and Liam Neeson.I juat could not get into the musical.

Anything Fred Astaire.

Ahhh and since Joss was mentioned I can't believe I forgot Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. 

 

Which I hated the first time I saw it. What is wrong with me?!

Ooooooop ... I forgot Grease. And also West Side Story.

 

Heck, I even like Grease 2, which is by no means a good movie, but highly entertaining for the first hour and 15 minutes or so. The remainder of the movie is virtually unwatchable.

 

What do y'all think about "jukebox musicals", where they construct a story around a bunch of pop/rock songs? Examples are We Will Rock You (Queen), American Idiot (green Day), and Mamma Mia! (ABBA)?

Oh, well this is the most embarrassing thing I'll ever post here, but as a kid, I saw Grease 2 before Grease and was obsessed with it. My sister and I used to make up elaborate stories about how we'd grow up and I'd marry Michael and she'd marry Johnny. Then we'd sing all the songs together. It was bad. I wanted to change my name to Stephanie for years. 

 

When I saw Grease a couple of years later, I couldn't believe how much better it was, but I still have a soft spot for the very badly acted second one. 

 

I'm not a fan of jukebox musicals. Off the top of my head I can't think of one I like a lot. Would Tommy count? I love that musical but it's more a rock opera I guess. Oh or Across the Universe - that movie I did love.

When my brother and I went to New York at the end of 2011, we queued 3 hours in the cold to get $30 standing tickets to see the Book of Mormon. We'd take turns to go to a nearby hotel to warm ourselves up, and eventually we had to change our resting location because the staff were starting to give us leery looks! I remember that the ordinary tickets had been sold out 2 months in advance. Oh man, that was sooo worth it.

 

Avenue Q is another great one. 

 

We also got to see Alan Rickman and Daniel Radcliffe in person from Seminar and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, which made many of our friends who were huge Harry Potter friends jealous =P Although I don't think either of the shows were that great.

 

I studied David Auburn's Proof for Literature as well, and I really liked it. I know there was another play by David Auburn going on around that time, but I think our schedule narrowly missed it. What a pity.

I heard that 'Book of Mormon' was good. Dan Savage, I think, gave it rave reviews and he's kind of picky about musicals.

 

My picks-

Singing in the Rain.

I just love it. Gene Kelly=My heart.

The movie adaptions of Chicago and Hairspray (the most recent ones) were totally squeal worthy for me! I loved them and the songs and the dancing and the everything!

/collapses with all the awesome.

My BF would be sooooo jealous. Book of Mormon is his favorite musical. Tickets are crazy! I can't believe you went for $30. You saw the original cast right?

Did you try the movie or the show? If you can find it, the final broadway show of Rent was really phenomenal.

Oh, it's not my favorite number ever or anything.  Just symbolic.

I was saying something different on that other thread, anyway... not intending to raise this topic.  But thank you for the appreciation. :) 

 

As it happens, before I decided to focus on more immediate political issues, I was in arts management, which I entered from different theatre work; I learned method acting at Ball State University.  Coincidentally, The Tempest is my favorite Shakespeare as well, though my favorite play is probably Cyrano de Bergerac.

 

Let's see... no one has mentioned Rodgers and Hammerstein yet. :| 

Oklahoma! - South Pacific - The King and I - The Sound of Music :pibo:

As it happens, before I decided to focus on more immediate political issues, I was in arts management, which I entered from different theatre work; I learned method acting at Ball State University.  Coincidentally, The Tempest is my favorite Shakespeare as well, though my favorite play is probably Cyrano de Bergerac.

 

Let's see... no one has mentioned Rodgers and Hammerstein yet. :| 

Oklahoma! - South Pacific - The King and I - The Sound of Music :pibo: 

 

I got your meaning in the last thread, but you did make me think of musicals. Cool you studied acting!

 

R&H is okay. I'm not their biggest fan. One, I was in Oklahoma! and being in that play drove me insane, so I can't even hear it now without going ugh! And after hanging out with Thespian groups too much in my younger days I think I've heard R&H songs way too much - that and freaking quotes from the Holy Grail. Ugh. 

 

I like the Sound of Music once in a while though.

I don't know if anyone here likes Panic! At The Disco but if you do like them they do an awesome cover of Skid Row. I'm not a huge PATD fan, but I do like Pretty Odd and this cover.
