Musicals: Stage and Screen -

Sweeney Todd (Anjela Lansbury was the best Mrs. Lovett)

Musical movie so I don't know if you want to count it, but I really like Phantom of the Paradise as well.

Damnation dignified
Book of Mormon was surprisingly funny.

Beyond that the only one I remember seeing was West Side Story. Not bad, good score.


I saw Avenue Q last week. It’s good, and some of the songs are more relevant than ever.

Stab You in the Back
What musicals do you like and what is one you'd suggest someone to see?
I am an unapologetic shill for The Drowsy Chaperone. Its one of the few Broadway musicals I went to that actually exceeded my expectations (the other two were Putnam County Spelling Bee and the first time I saw Fiddler on the Roof). Chaperone is one of those musicals that has to be seen to be believed (in a venue that stages it right), because the soundtrack does not do it justice.

When I'm in a listening mood, I usually stick with the classics:

You're never going to hear an orchestra like that in a modern musical.

And there's this, which might just be the coolest musical-related thing on youtube:

edit: might as well just throw this up here

The oddest Sondheim collaboration.

Hunchback Of Notre Dame (broadway version) is one of my favorite musicals. I wish it had gotten more play on the stage.

I've been a fag for the original London production of The Phantom of the Opera since I was a toddler. I'm also really into the Book of Mormon, RENT (the movie version more, funny enough), Mamma Mia!, and Wicked.

Necro for the remote Sondheim 90th Birthday concert.
