Today’s List: Top 5 Favorite Musicals

By Steven Taylor @ 5:37 pm

I am no connoisseur of musicals, but I know what I like. As inspired by this list, as found on Jen Speaks, I present Today’s List:

My Top 5 Favorite Musicals

5. The Wizard of Oz. It’s simply cool. I am old enough to remember when movies such as this were an annual event on TV, and it was a big deal when they were on (at least when you’re a kid).

4. The Sound of Music. A true classic-how can you go wrong with a singing family besting a bunch of Nazis? (also another one of those “on once a year” deals).

3. My Fair Lady. A true joy, although Rex Harrison’s sing/talking is somewhat amusing at times. And even though she doesn’t do her own singing, how can you not like Audrey Hepburn?

2. The Phantom of the Opera. I saw it live in Los Angeles with Michael Crawford back in the late 1980s (1989 or 1990). Very cool.

1. Les Miserables. I have the soundtrack, which was a gift from a friend many years ago. I love the music and the story, but have never gotten to see it, save for a PBS thing wherein the original cast sang their parts in costume to a live audience.

Honorable mentions: Beauty and the Beast, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Mary Poppins

If you want to play along in the comments section, feel free-or if you have your own blog, post your own list and link back to this post to get a trackback link posted here on PoliBlog.
