What, a non-musical post?
Yeah, I saw Spamalot in January. It was alright I suppose.

I will comment only on Broadway musicals, not movie musicals.
Search: Sweeney Todd--Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Assassins, Company, Spring Awakening, A Chorus Line, Into the Woods (sorry I'm throwing so much Sondheim in here), Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Ragtime, Kiss Me Kate, Chicago....too many to list
Destroy: Wedding Singer (one of the worst musicals I ever saw--broadway, not movie), Pajama Game, Babes in Arms, ehh...

People are too serious when commenting on musicals. Why does everyone hate Andrew Lloyd Webber so much? By the way, I despise "Grease".

I love "Jesus Christ Superstar" and that is Andrew Lloyd Webber! But I think the hatred probably comes from getting "Phantom of the Opera" songs stuck in your head all the time as a teenager because it was the only musical anyone knew and people liked singing it WAY too much. He really writes earworms.

Just saw the London production of 'Hair' (with the Broadway cast) - http://hairthemusical.co.uk.
Really liked it - especially the good singing voices - and the real surprise was that the plot kind of made sense this time. I saw the Old Vic production back in 1993 and they made a bit of a mess of it.
Also thanks England team - cheapest seats upgraded to really good ones at no extra charge last night.
Will probably go again before this production ends.

saw Bernadette & Elaine in A Little Night Music tonight, worth at least $50 of the $70 I paid.

love this thread, as my daughter needs to watch a half-dozen musicals for forth-grade (dvd's count). she's devoured some children's fare, and now actually wants to watch les miserables (we'll see how that goes; it's a dark, intense work for a near 10-year old).

are there any "musicals" centered around really weird abstract non-anthemic non-singsong music?
