    Les Miserables is my favorite! I have seen it many times, and I could probably sing the entire soundtrack by heart. I LOVE it. I also like Miss Saigon, Annie, Phantom of the Opera, Sound of Music and Rent.

    I directed over 40 high school musicals and like many of the ones mentioned here. Another one I like a lot which surprised me was Honk!

    It's not my all-time favorite, but no one has mentioned Gigi so I figured I should represent.

    Phantom of the opera, every once in awhile I break out the CD I got when I saw it years ago and crank it. Gives me chills

    "Tommy"...sure plays a mean pinball.
  • Wicked, Avenue Q, West Side Story, Into the Woods, Anything Goes, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (so catchy!... I know it's terrible, but I do love it).

    ... and if we're going campy TV musicals, Cannibal the Musical has to be my favorite.

    Can't pick one.

    Into the Woods, Les Mis, Rock of Ages, Rent, Fiddler, Sweeney Todd.

    There are more. But I figured 6 was sufficient. LOVE musicals, can't wait to see a few on Broadway next year.

    not in general, but the musical sucked. I liked a few of the songs. I often find myself singing Magical Mr Mistoffelees, but man that show sucked.


    Some of my favs are
    Les Mis
    Side Show
    Miss Saigon

    Mine's 7 Brides for 7 Brothers :drinker:
    I second 7 Brides for 7 Brothers! I also enjoy Fiddler on the Roof, Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Singing in the Rain, and My Fair Lady.
  • having had an Aunt who lived in the Broadway district of NYC in the late 60's into the late 70's, I was raised on musicals, and I never saw one I didn't love.

    BUT for this journey I have a song, it's from Burlesque.

    This is the song that has stopped me from reaching for that cupcake time and time again, the song in my car, always at the ready to hit play when I see the Golden arches, the song that I play over and over while I exercise, the song I hear in my head, with fists clenched, and un-relentless determination, while I envision all those who have used, and abused me, put me down, told me I wasn't worth the effort, good enough, lovable, desirable, pretty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6l5VE1SC8I "You Haven't Seen The Last of Me"...

    I like My Fair Lady, but I hated the way it ended. I remember really vividly when I first saw Moulin Rouge.
