Anyone see Sunset Blvd? I saw it in NY with Betty Buckley. I loved the sets in this show. The mansion set was amazing.

Was it Five? I just know it was a lot of guys named Moe and it was a great show!

I also had the fortune of seeing them performing on ice skates in Reunion Arena (hockey rink) and it was awesome!

Mine is still Jekyll & Hyde. Love the music and moodiness of it.

It seemed to do quite well when it came through some time back. I'm always surprised not to see it mentioned.

I prefer the pre-B'way cd (2 cd's actually) over the B'way version, there's more music. On the pre-B'way version, theirs a song that, to me at least, set's the entire mood for the show, and it's called "I need to know." Very good song.

On tour, in San Antonio, some 15 years ago, I saw Jesus Christ Superstar. It had Ted Neely and Carl Anderson in the lead roles. I was already a fan of the music, and had seen the movie, so it was wonderful.
About a year later, Phantom of the Opera came to San Antonio. MrsJT and I went together, and it blew me away!
I didn't get to experience another show until a couple of weeks ago. We spent the week before Christmas in Manahattan, and the final piece of our tour was on Christmas Eve. We saw Wicked. It was a true Broadway experience, and it was awesome. Two days later I bought both the Cast Recording as well as the original novel. That's a show I wouldn't mind seeing again.

CapeCodTenor--you are NOT alone. I love the musical CATS also..my VHS copy is almost worn to a nub and I wish I could find it on DVD around here.
Last summer, our HS did Bye Bye Birdie which was terriffic. I also really like RENT.

When DH and I were in community college together, we were stagehands (I did backstage prop work and he was in the lightbooth) for Little Shop of Horrors and Sweeney Todd (another of my favorites). During Sweeney, our lead actor (the guy playing Sweeney) really taught us all what "The show MUST go on!" means. During a tech rehearsal about a week before the show opened, he fell through the trap door beneath his barber's chair. His back was all scraped up and he broke 4 ribs. I was a spot op and DH was on lightboard when it happened. We could see the trap door had been opened prematurely,but we couldn't radio down to the stage mgr quick enough to do anything about it. Our Sweeney went to the hospital and came back I think the next day all taped up and doped up on pain meds but ready to perform.
He put on a pretty good show too. When he stalked out on the stage for the first number, you could see people in the front row just kind of leaning back to get away from him.

Burn This(John Malkovich-HOT!)

Musical: The Wiz(Andre de Shields as the Wizard-AWESOME)

Lez mis
Phantom of the opera
Rent

I love rent. Glory is like my favorite song. I love plays.
Only play I ever thought was dull was The Fantasticks. I saw it done at our local college and it was very odd plot. I was so bored. Then again I was only there cause my best freind was in it.

Speaking of, we had a HS here that was in a lot of hot water recently because they had decided to do "RENT" (albeit a toned down version). A lot of parents got very upset about it and the school eventually decided to cancel all performances. DH and I were planning on going, too, to support the young actors even though it's not our town's HS. I think it was awfully brave of them to even think about doing this at a HS level. It's very intense and deals with some very adult situations.

No day but today...

Hmm.. I'm not even sure I know what my #1 favorite is.. good question!

But my favorites include: Wicked, Miss Saigon, Annie & The Producers

We had a chance to see The Producers here in Chicago before they opened up in Broadway. And while the songs weren't the greatest, Nathan Lane was amazing and Matthew Broderick did pretty well too. And the two of them together were hilarious!
