Musicals are still great


I don't think we have a thread for musicals? Feel free to join this one, if we do.

I have Sound of Musics "16 going on 17" stuck in my head, and it's probably my favourite number in the whole thing. From a pure music standpoint, that is. But every time the line at the start "Your life, little girl, is an empty page, that men will want to write on." I cringe. It just reads so gross to me.

Uh, I guess that's not a great way to start a thread about how much I love musicals, musical episodes in TV shows and the specific kind of songs, that feel like their own genre. I haven't seen one in ages now, because I don't like to watch them that much on the screen - being dressed up, sitting in the theatre and watching people perform live is just part of the experience for me. I can't wait to watch something live again.

I have seen Evita a few years ago, and I want to see it again so badly. Also, I have never seen Les Miserable, but do know a few of the songs and love them. "Do you hear the people sing?" (I'm not sure if that is the actual title) might be my favourite? Or maybe "I dreamed a dream"? Eh, I don't need to rank them, they are both great.

Not sure where I want to go with this thread, but if anyone wants to talk about musicals or musical episodes in TV shows, we have a thread for it now.

I've never seen "How to Succeed in Business" but I borrowed the Daniel Radcliffe production from the library (I tend to temporarily download albums from the library into my phone for running) and its a lot of fun.
