it has been a while since i have seen any - either at the theater or in movie format - but i really used to love South Pacific played at a live theater... I guess other ones used to dig would include movie-musicals like dirty dancing and flash-dance, and live theater musicals like sound of music and king and I. i also liked don giovanni - but thats kinda opera more than musical, i spose...

The Wife and I are going to see a live performance of WIcked this coming Friday night. We've heard nothing but rave reviews.

^^ I saw that a couple of years ago, and liked it a lot.

I just saw Rent for the first time this past weekend and thought it was great. The songs aren't as memorable as some other musicals I've seen, but the characters and storylines were very strong and touching.

I've had a song from Sweet Charity floating around in my head for about a week.
Imagine by John Lennon

I am going to see Annie on the 23rd. My friend does set design at one of the local theaters, and is giving us free tickets! I saw the movie about 30 years ago, but have never seen it at the theater.

Singing in the Rain is the best musical ever made. I even have it on DVD.
