so i just finished a spree of musical watching:The Phantom Of The Opera,The Devil’s Carnival and Phantom Of The Paradise.
(first was awesome,second had a great second half and the third had a couple of good songs)
anyway it got me thinking:“hey i wonder what the awesome community of COG thinks about musicals?”
so i decided to post this Discussion.
my favourite musicals are:
(not in order)
1.Chicago: fun and spunky music
favourite song:Cell Block Tango
2.Wicked: great retelling of a classic tale
favourite song:tie between Dancing Through Life and What Is This Feeling?
3.Phantom Of The Opera: admittedly it IS overrated and the plot isn’t the best,but the music IS great
favourite song:The Phantom Of The Opera
4.Jekyll And Hyde:The Musical: can’t believe i only found out about it this year.haven’t seen the play yet,but based on the music it is by FAR my favourite musical.(Anthony Warlow’s version is by far the best)
5.Evil Dead:The Musical:soooooo funny(and fantastically campy)
favourite song:It’s Time
6.Reefer Madness(2004):a comedy musical that makes fun of the original Reefer Madness from 1936
favourite song:Reefer Madness
7.Repo! The Genetic Opera:a fantastic(and dark)rock musical
favourite song:tie between Night Surgeon and 21st Century Cure
8.The Devil’s Carnival:made by the same people who made Repo!. if you ignore the first half then this is a very good,dark and creepy musical
favourite song:In All My Dreams I Die(CreepyPasta material for sure)
9.Sweeny Todd:at this point it should be fairly obvious that i prefer dark and/or funny musicals
favourite song:A Little Priest
10.Little Shop Of Horrors:Steve Martin as the comically sadistic dentist makes this movie unforgettable(to me at least)
favorite song:Feed Me
honourable mentions to:Flight Of The Concords and Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
the only reason i didn’t include them is because they are neither plays nor movies.
so what are YOUR favourite musicals(thats right i’m looking at you)
