Hedwig and the Angry Inch, though I think it is not playing anymore.

Book of mormon – total must

I did not like phantom, I’m not sure why people are obsessed with it.

I’ve seen Hamilton and it’s amazing but getting a ticket is really hard if you’re coming to NY anytime soon.

I saw King and I 2 or 3 times so far and it’s SO GOOD.  I’ve loved it every time, with every cast I’ve seen (once Kelli was out and her understudy was great, and there have been several kings).  DEFINITELY see that one.  If you like to be up close and personal sit in the orchestra toward your left, there’s a moment in the beginning that seems like it would be cool from there.

I’ve heard good things about Fun Home, Something Rotten, and Book of Mormon.  A few years ago the reviewers were all saying Book of Mormon was gonna be the defining musical of this era or whatever, which is funny when you read the same people’s reviews of Hamilton, but now tickets are a lot easier to come by.

I have to say I did quite enjoy Chicago.  It’s a much simpler style than the movie.  But it would probably depend on who is in the cast…I saw it in 2004.  Jersey Boys is also really good.

Atalanta:  I didn’t like Phantom either!  Why do people like it so much??

Wicked will forever be my favourite!

I hated the Book of Mormon. I thought it was completely tasteless/racist, and the music was boring. I really don’t understand why people flip for it… My skin was crawling the whole time, I was so appalled. This article (it contains both spoilers and cussing) pretty well sums up my feelings: http://bit.ly/1SrzkER

Anyway, just wanted to mention that as someone who spent a lot of money on tickets to see Book of Mormon and was incredibly disappointed. Fingers crossed for the Hamilton lottery! I’ve heard nothing but raves.
