    Closer To Heaven
    It's a musical by Jonathan Harvey and The Pet Shop Boys. It only ran for 6 months in London. I couldn't find my favourite part on YouTube, this video isn't the best quality and doesn't do the music justice.

    This isn't my favorite number from the show. But Assassins is so wonderful.



    bonus points for Neal Patrick Harris as Lee Harvey Oswald.

    (favorite scene) The Hair whip, honey, the hair whip!


    (Favorite musical) Kiss Me Kate, it's always been Kiss Me Kate, especially love this song. LOL, not highly guarded. I bought the soundtrack, between that and The "Techni-Color Dream Coat" playing as I dressed for school, my coming out was no surprise to my mother.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>When I saw this topic my first thought was the sound of music, so glad to see I'm not alone. I saw it about a year after it came out with my friend from Holland, we were both about 13 years old. I think my favorite music scene was when the family sang at the public hall then immediately escaped afterwords. I doubt there's been a musical that's been seen as much as this one.

    At the moment it's "The Money Song" from Ave Q

    Favorites can involve fond memories, not just great music. One of mine was the King & I which I saw in 1956, just astonished by the wide-screen imagery, overwhelming color and glorious music. And for some reason this particular number, among many great ones, became my favorite. (BTW, I later wore a period dress nearly as full as Deborah Kerr's here). I can't find a good online copy of the original soundtrack version, with Marni Nixon dubbing Kerr, but this is the voice of Julie Andrews done years later.

    You've got good taste there!

    I'm leaning toward Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog or A Very Potter Musical, though I am a sucker for the Music Man.

    Victor/Victoria, 1982 movie version with Julie Andrews, James Garner, and the wonderful, gay-in-real-life Robert Preston.

    Another sentimental favorite, I didn't see it until 1997 on video disc, at the home of a gay man in Miami with whom I stayed for a few days, before riding my motorcycle back to Seattle, my home at the time.

    Not only did I find the movie a total delight, and do today, but this was still relatively early in my coming out process. When all things gay were new to me, with new feelings to match my new experiences. Watching Victor/Victoria was part of that magical time for me, which the lovely Henry Mancini opening score continues to evoke when I hear it today. Sorry I've found no good online clips to share.

    I love Jesus Christ Superstar! Of course you can't beat the classics, Guys & Dolls, Anything Goes, etc. I used to be in a lot of plays and Grease was a fun play to be in but now I can't stand to watch it.

    I don't think I've ever seen a musical... does my fair lady count? My dad showed me this a while ago and I was blown away.
