Favorite Musicals?

I'm a total musical junkie, so I was wondering what your favorite musicals were and if there are any you would recommend.

My favorite musical has to be Wicked, but I also love Hairspray, Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, and Aida.

It's a 1950's big screen musical with Howard Keel. Fun in all it's cheesey-ness!
Worth it for the barn raising scene alone!

I actually really like Camelot (but I'm biased; we just did that one at my high school...).

Also, Bye Bye Birdy is a fun one! I'd really like to see Wicked, too, but I haven't gotten the chance.

Wicked is absolutely spectacular! You just have to see it! They've done several national and a few international tours, so perhaps they'll do another one. Or you could always see it on Broadway. If you just want a sample, there are lots of videos on Youtube.

Wicked's my favorite i've seen so far too! It was amazing. I saw it ages ago as a gift from my aunt, but I'd die to see it again.
Dont laugh, but my 2nd favorite is Tarzan on Broadway. lol I saw it in NYC, and it was fantastic! Everyone had dreadlocks and were acting like monkeys, swinging everywhere. It was great!
The only music from a musical i actually listen to is the music from Sweeney Todd. I love the morbidly funny songs, never seen a proper play of it tho.

My favourite has to be Wicked, I've seen it 2 times now and planning to see it for a 3rd in the summer- ' freakin' amaaazing' doesn't even come close to describing it! <3 Also liked Rocky Horror Picture Show for the banter but I doubt I'd see it twice.

Gotta love the Wizard of Oz too!

Guys and Dolls is the best! My school just put it on as a play. The whole thing is brilliant.

My favorites are a little less well known then the big hollywood productions but I recommend

1) The Last Five Years - Two people telling the story of their relationship, one starting at the end the other starting at the beginning. They meet in the middle when they decide to marry. It's beautiful.

2) A New Brain - A Gay song writer who has put off his dream to write for a children's show he hates and discovers he has a brain tumor.

3) Into the Woods - Another look at the Grimm's fairy tales with tons of humor, wit and insight as all the characters interact.

But of course I also love Wicked, Sweeney Todd, Songs for a New World, Tick-Tick BOOM!, Phantom of the Opera, Bat Boy, Aladdin the Musical, Summer Stalk, Kiss Me Kate, Phantom of the Opera, Avenue Q, Beauty and The Beast, Chicago, Jeklle & Hyde ... the list goes on...

I saw Tarzan on a school trip to New York, and i loved it. I cant believe people left! I thought it was exciting! They actually swung around on vines on stage, and butterfly people came from the ceiling, it was awesome. If you like the movie, you'll definetely love the play, their exactly the same. Only tarzans hotter, and the characters are real and funny. lol XD My friend laughed at me cuz i knew all the songs and was singing. lol
I ALMOST saw 'Phantom of the Opera' in high school, but when we were half-way there on the bus my school cancelled the trip!!! It was supposedly 'because of snow', but it never snowed! I was never so pissed in all my life. And i had seats right behind the orchestra, and we were never refunded. grrrrr...
My Aunt saw Mary Poppins and said she liked it. Happy But she's seen EVERY play out there before.
I think i heard of a 'The Little Mermaid' broadway play somewhere years ago, was that true? because THAT i would love to see. lol That was my favorite movie as a kid. I also want to see Green Days American Idiot play. Sounds interesting.
