I know I am forgetting some...I could go on and on. I love musicals - my husband hates them. He says they are unrealistic - people do not break out in song in day to day life. I tell him the movies he watches are unrealistic - Adam Sandler would not be pulling in the quality of tail he does in real life like he does in the movies. :o

These are debased times when the musical version of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra's knight errant isn't remembered or mentioned. In a perfect world, "Man of La Mancha" would have been adapted to film and be as big a success as "South Pacific."

So, to those who keep the flame of hope burning and dare to dream, here's Richard Kiley to sing "The Impossible Dream."

Anyone else like showtunes? I'm sure psychocatholic would have a lot to say about this subject.

Tis true, Peaches speaks the truth. I love almost all musicals. Jesus Christ Superstar is a wonderful musical, although it wasnt highly successful on the movie screen, it is loved by many.

Chicago- The first time i saw this was in a movie theatre, and i fell in love with it the first time. The dancing, the music, and the way it was put together.

Now, a main favorite of mine is Lil Abner...dont know how many people will remember that one, but that, along with Brigadoon were my first 2 musicals i ever did. I played Evil Eyed Fleagle in Abner, it was awesome. But, i just dont hear alot about it, guess it wasnt a hit.

Ill also mention Phantom of the Opera...one of the most succesful.

Of these, the showtunes are what draws people in. Showtunes of course makes a musical a musical Obviously. But what makes them good...

They have to draw you in, pull you into the music, and it has to surround you. You feel like you are the only one in the room, and they are singing to you and only you. Its a wonderful feeling.

In Jesus Christ Superstar the song that Jesus sings at the Garden of Gethsemane. When he first shows his human side, his emotions. I felt like i was following him.

In Chicago, i felt like a juror.

In Phantom of the Opera, i felt like the phantom, i was apart of the music during the song. Music of the Night.

Strong, powerful musicals, get my blood flowing. I Love em, and they will always have a special place in my heart. Peace.

I might post more later, but im watching Philadelphia.
