    I can't believe there's no Broadway musical discussion forum. Bad gay men! Use this for a free-flowing discussion of Broadway musicals. I'll start with my five favorites:
    1)The Lion King
    2)Wicked
    3)Rent
    4)Into the Woods
    5)Spring Awakening or Ragtime

    Broadway musicals are gay.

    We're not gay.

    We're jocks with more sexy muscles than brains.

    No homo.

    By the way, Into the Woods is going to be in Central Park this summer. Anybody going? I saw Hair there a few years ago and they did a great job.

    I've been to more sporting events than musicals. That probably wouldn't be true if I lived in NYC though. Keep on being macho. I'll compare my testosterone to yours any time. But I love me some Lion King.

    I always thought Hairspray, Mama Mia and Chicago made better movies than stage shows.

    I went to a burlesque show a few weeks ago with a local friend (a sexy RJ'er). My testosterone is right where it needs to be. icon_biggrin.gif

    Have you seen The Lion King? I dare anybody to see The Lion King and come away saying they don't like musicals.

    I can see what you're saying, I'd agree that Mama Mia is not a great stage show. I've seen a few great productions of hairspray. icon_razz.gif

    Top two are good, but replace last three with Evita, Cats, and anything else by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

    I have never had the honor of seeing a live broadway musical, but someday.

    I love:

    1)Rent
    2) Wicked
    3) Les Miserables
    4) Hairspray
    5) Phantom of the Opera

    Although - truthfully - Rent would really occupy spots 1-5.

    Edit: I read back up and noticed that most of us listed the same five... lol...

    Honestly, I really can't get into musicals. I fell asleep during Wicked when I went to see it. But, Lion King was really awesome. Everything about was great. The woman who played Rafiki was phenomenal.

    I will definitely agree with Wicked (original cast preferred, although I wouldn't mind Hilty as Glinda) Les Mis and Rent and of course the Lion King.

    The reason why the Lion King is so awesome is a combination of just about everything. Music, costumes, everything just works so well and is so comprehensive in detail it all just blows you away.

    West Side Story is another one of my favorite ones when done correctly. Too often I've heard a very lackluster "America" where it sounds like the cast is being forced at gunpoint to sing it instead of the lively spirited dancing number it is supposed to be. Some great vocal numbers by Bernstein however, with "Maria" and "Something's Coming" as well as "One Heart" (or at least I think that's the name of it).

    This made me moist. How about turning it into a musical?

    I saw Carrie the Musical a few weeks ago at the Lortel theatre in NYC.

    It was horrible.
