I love Wicked, Les Mis is too long for me, Phantom is a classic and the Lion King is good. The last show I saw was the new production of West Side Story and I wasn’t a huge fan. I thought the addition of Spanish was kinda silly (and I understand Spanish so I just felt bad for everyone else in the audience). I am dying to see Jersey Boys.

Les Mis is HANDS DOWN my favorite show.

I’ve seen it twice on broadway, once in LA, once in London, and once by a community theater.

I would go again in a heartbeat. I cannot wait to see it again.

I love Les Mis and Chicago. I’ve never seen Wicked, but really, really want to!

Tommy will always will be my #1, because it was my first, and ignited my love of musicals, but Phantom ranks a VERY close second.  I am dying to see Les Mis.

I’ve seen Wicked, Phantom, and Lion King. I would LOVE to see Les Mis–it’s been my favorite for a decade, but it wouldn’t be the same with different voices than the ones I love.

Jersey Boys has amazing music, but I don’t know what the story is really about.

I’d love to see Rent as well. I’ve seen off-broadway versions of Cats (terrible!), Annie Get Your Gun (meh), Into the Woods (not bad), and several others.

I think my favorite is Wicked. Great show. Beautiful sets and a lot of fun.

I just want to add I’ve also seen all the following:

RENT (seen it twice, very good)

Phantom (fantastic the 1st time, boring the second)

Cats (loved it the first time, got bored the 2nd)

Les Mis (favorite of all time)

Chicago (just ok)

Lion King (really wonderful artistically)

Mamma Mia! (really fun, seen it 3 times)

Fiddler on the Roof (saw it at community theater, wasn’t thrilled)

Wicked (really enjoyed it, sat almost front row which may have added to the enjoyment)

Hairspray (a lot of fun)

Avenue Q (hilarious, saw it 3 times)

The Producers (depends on who the leads are, very good show with good leads)

Jersey Boys (really good and you know all the music)

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (you can skip this one)

Rock of Ages (really fun and all good 80s music… plus they hand out LED lighters and serve cocktails in the theater)

Ragtime (I enjoyed it)

In the Heights (really good with the original cast)

Sister Act: The Musical (terrible)

Fame (eh… it was ok)

Beauty and the Beast (surprisingly good)

Spring Awakening (I liked it, my mom didn’t)

The Drowsy Chaperone (just ok)

Starlight Express (LOVED this for some reason. Saw it when I was really young. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that all the actors were on roller blades)

Wonderful Town (I think we left at intermission)

Now on to plays:

A Bronx Tale (amazing, but I don’t think Chaz Palmentari is doing it any more)

Pygmailon (pretty good, it’s the story My Fair Lady was based on)

Stones in His Pockets (fantastic story, but the actors need to be top notch)

A Streetcar Named Desire (really good)

There are many others, but I can’t remember them at the moment.

I’ve seen Rent, Chorus Line, and Rock of Ages on Broadway and Wicked touring and all were very good.  Chorus Line was probably my least favorite of the 4 though.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:Ooh, if you have the choice of going to see Lion King – DO IT!   I was hesitant to see it for a long time because I loved the movie and just didn’t think a Broadway production would be able to cut it without being cheesy.  Let me just say, it blew my mind.  The opening scene of Lion King was AMAZING.  After the show, I immediately booked tickets to see it again two weeks later when my parents were going to be in London visiting me.  I also saw the US production of it and was not disappointed.  It truly is a spectacular show!
