    Am I the only person that actually despises musicals? It's what made the South Park movie suck. The only thing worse is Bollywood.

    I think I like blues brothers just as much as I like Rocky Horror, thinking about it.

    It was tongue-in-cheek musical at it's best, I thought.

    Kiss Me, Kate, Guys and Dolls, Les Mis and Chicago (well, that's going by the film alone.) are the only "normal" musicals I like, really. Normally though, I don't really like musicals.

    Oh, and The Jungle Book of that counts.

    :D Love it! Also West Side Story, Chicago, Cabaret, Blood Brothers.... Most things that don't involve Lloyd-Webber!

    Just seen the Producers tonight and it was soooo amazing! Nathan Lane wasn't in but his understudy was great so it didn't matter. You've just gotta love that show. Completely offensive to absolutely everyone, but so damn' funny!

    Keep it gay, keep it gay, keep it gaaaaay...

    oh, you shoulda seen it at the Palace! Damn Lloyd-Webber and his Woman in White. :( I gather it's still amazing but the orchestra's been reduced a bit.

    No, I REALLY don't like musicals. I did when I was about 5.

    west side story..........i've done so many songs from this for my exams
    rent
    les miserables........and this one too
    sound of music
    chicago live is fantastic....i did stage managment for my local drama company for that once
    seven brides for seven brothers
    rocky horror
    i once saw a musical adaptation of queen of the damned and it was brilliant. though the guy playing lestat had an amazing voice, so the rest of it could have been crap.

    I think my favourite musical would have to be Joseph and the Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat. I went through a big phase of knowing every song and lyrics, owning the soundtrack, the written lyrics. I'm over it now though:D

    i did music theatre grades for years and then i gave it all up for rockschool. I still love musicals and still do the odd song (and i've been asked to do some parts in les mis, and chicago by my vocals teacher), but i'd never go back to just doing that.

    Personally I find some musicals pretentious, but one I do like is Phantom of the Opera... No, not because of the new film, I saw it years ago...

    The musical score is breath taking performed live and the chandeleer falling is wicked. I loved it, it was magical.
