Hi
I wonder, if you dislike all musicals at all, even the Rocky Horror Picture Show,
or only the new tendency making a musical out of everything.

I despise musicals, but Rocky Horror will always hold a special place in my heart. I'd like to see you incorporate the time warp into your set somewhere, Frank... It's just a jump to the left

Truly "non annoying" musicals: RENT, Hair, Next to Normal, American Idiot, Book of Mormon, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Spring Awakening, In the Heights. They have great music and meaningful lyrics. Just like some awesome singer/songwriter from Winchester. Give 'Em a listen....

A history buff would appreciate this from BBAJ: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRSlBjNh ... re=related

Peace, Darlene
shows? 90 so far...

What about Avenue Q Frank? Surely you've seen and enjoyed Nofx's rendition of 'Everyone's a little bit racist', correct?

whilst the songs are awesome, and yes I really like the arrangments of some of them, the storyline is complete and utter toss! I've had to teach this several times and it doesn't get any easier!

Avenue Q is fantastic as is Wicked, the storyline and links with Oz are genius.

To be honest though on the whole the storylines of most musicals are usually utter toss. the storyline cant be realistic for a start if people randomly start singing and dancing in the street.

You mean you don't express your feelings through song? People don't suddenly join in with you as you walk down the street? Bad times hahaha. But there is a difference between a good plot or storyline and realism.

I've tried expressing my feelings through song as i walk down the street but it doesnt have the effect i envisioned :wink: when you say that i suddenly realise that most of my fav films aren't that realistic...

I really like Les Miserables, I enjoy the running motifs through it, despite some of the flowery lyrics.

I never really had an opinion on musicals up until March when I went to my first, it was "The Wiz" motown version of The Wizard of Oz, and I have to say, I though it was brilliant. have been to 3 so far, and planning on going to see Wicked before the years out. Never seen Rocky Horror, that's on the list. Les Miserable is supposed to be ace aswell.
