Oh, and did I mention Les Misérables :lol:

You like it then? :lol: I do too :wink: First time we saw it we sat in the 2nd or 3rd row (at the Palace in Cambridge Circus - years ago) and Valjean was literally spitting at us as he was singing the Soliloquywhere he's been released on parole and everyone treat's him like shit so he's railing at the Universe and we were literally pinned to our seats it was so intense during the eye for an eye bit! :shock: And then bit after the intermission (or just before it? doesn't matter :) ) where they use a turntable and wotisname the student rebel leader is waving the big flag - we thought he was going to land on our laps (well my friend and I were hoping he was 'cos he was GORGEOUS!) :lol:

Bloody brilliant musical theatre I dreamed a dream (not by Subo) is one of my all time fave songs regardless of style and sung properly (Subo does to be fair, but you need to act too) it never fails to make me cry buckets :cry: :lol:

I hate musicals, as soon as they start singing in a film it gets turned off.

Almost certainly Moving Pictures (in fact they made a Busby Berkely spoof called Gold Diggers - starring lots of dwarves :lol: ).

That or possibly Soul Music but it'd have to have Rocks In of course :wink:

There are already two Pratchett musicals. Only You Can Save Mankind has been professionally staged several times including in London's West End and The Amazing Maurice is soon to be available as a school production version

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Rocky Horror Picture Show
Blood Brothers
Jesus Christ Superstar

I concur! 'If my heart could beat it would BREAK MY CHEST!' - I reckon the best DW musical would be Reaper Man. :)

I like the end where they are all singing "Where do we go from here" and Spike suddenly cottons on and looks up at his hand in the air and says "Bugger this!" or words to that effect and swirls out.

But, yes, LOVE the Buffy musical.
. . . and I'm all like, "I wrote a book, innit," and they're all like, "Well where can we get it," and I'm all like, "Here . . ."
