    in NYC. We saw: Oklahoma, Hairspray, Phantom, and Les Miserables (which was such an incredible production and by far my favorite).

    I saw Wicked in the sixth grade at the Pantages.

    I cried. Not because it was sad, but because it was just SO FREAKIN GOOD.

    The (new) Broadway State Revival Of West Side Story; My Take On It:

    The Broadway stage revival of West Side Story that my sister in law, my niece and I saw yesterday afternoon was enjoyable, but, being a devout fan of the film version of WSS who's also seen several really good stage productions of West Side Story prior to seeing this one, there...

    My Favourites :)

    My very favourites are The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables. I also enjoy the Fantasticks a great deal, but that's off-broadway. Jekyll and Hyde, The Lion King, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Beauty and the Beast are others I enjoy. I would not recommend Cats. Rent is alright...

    Only One

    I saw "Spamalot" on Broadway when my mum & I had a weekend in NYC back in May. I've seen lots of shows/musicals but most of them I've seen in the UK.

    My Favorite Was...

    I have seen many shows as I live in NY, but my favorite was Rent.  I saw it with the original cast.  It was brilliant.  I don't know what else to say about it.  I loved it.   I still do.  I always will.

    I've seen Les Miserables live in concert

    and it was one of the most moving musical experiences I've ever seen performed. Before you die, if see this magnificent performance for the ages. You won't regret this story of patriotism, love and loss. It just doesn't get any better.

    Les Miserables

    I got to see Les Miserables at Broadway.  The coolest thing about it was it happened to work out that I read the book, Les Miserables in French class (the whole book in French!)  I really liked the story.  Then my choir group decided to go on a trip to NYC Broadway...

    Rock of Ages So I saw the movie

    and loved it before actually seeing the musical. The thing is that I love the 80s and the movie gave me a little taste of what the music and environment was like but then I saw the Broadway musical and it was like wayyyyy better. It beats up the movie by far! It was funnier...

    Wicked

    I have seen many, many musicals both on Broadway and off. My recent favorite which I have seen seen twice is Wicked. Last year, I saw Avenue Q which I enjoyed. I was a bit disappointed with The Color Purple. I recently heard that Little House on the Prarie will be a new musical...

    Lion King Las Vegas

    I had to write this to say I strongly recommend going to see this if you get the chance. The music and costumes were incredible. I actually went by myself which could have been a really bad thing, but it turned out for the best because I got a great seat just one row behind the...

    Addam's Family

    It is a must when vacationing in NYC to see a play. We had two young children with us and limited the choices to a show that would keep their interest. "Addam's Family" was the production we saw. Brooke Shields had joined the cast earlier in the week, replacing Bebe Neuwirth...

    ...and the latest and best I've seen is a real gem, JERSEY BOYS - definitely a "don't miss." And probably the best off-Broadway play I've ever seen is also a "must see" - STOMP.
