Buffy's episode is great, but i woldn't call it a musical.
My favourite is Evita and allmost everything else that Webber has composed.

One musical which touches me a lot deeper than it should is called Fellowship! the musical parody of the fellowship of the ring.I've never seen it but have heard all the songs online.

If anyone has spotify the cast recording is available on it.

Across The Universe is good.

Directed by Julie Taymor. Starring Evan Rachel Wood, Jim Sturgess, Joe Anderson. The music of the Beatles and the Vietnam War form the backdrop for the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian ...

Pretty amazing considering I don't like the Beatles music, it makes the music and the songs appear in a whole different light.

(although I admit I hate making "favourites of any kind) and yes I love Les Miserables.

Oh don't start ... the list of my fav musicals is long long long.

I'm not fond of musicals, although I have enjoyed Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which could technically be called one.

Now, although Doctor Who hasn't done a musical episode yet, one of the Big Finish stories, Doctor Who and the Pirates, has Colin Baker singing a very different version of Model of a Modern Major General...

Watch, and laugh your face off.

And I have heard him sing live at a panto in Bath. Believe me, you haven't heard anyone sing until you hear him sing Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Of all of Webber's work I haven't seen The Phantom yet. I guess it's because it's the most expensive.
But the Evita movie is great, the best thing Madonna has ever done.

Well, I intend to meet Colin Baker for the second time in Brisbane soon. Maybe I could get him to sing Time Warp for you... :)

I forgot how much I love An American in Paris. I really like George Gershwin's music and this one has all the best tunes in it. Sharlene sent me the DVd and I'm watching it now. It's fab! :D

:D :D :D
Years before we had a TV we had a radio (big old valve job) and a stereo. The album I played over and over and over and over was "American In Paris" (Well that and the Irish and Scottish ones Mum loved) I knew every note in it, and would dance to it for hours. I could HEAR the frantic traffic in Paris (Dad used to travel and explained the music to me as a child) and I could actually HEAR the Gershwin music when I was standing in Paris :D :D

Imagine my joy when many years later I saw the movie on TV. :D :D

I have the huge retro 60's stereo down in the storeroom :D and the album sitting in the storage cabinet built into it. (Thank the gods noone else in the family thought either was worth wanting when my parents died)

The 17 minute ballet at the end of the movie is incredible - as is the dream sequence where they play part of the Gershwin Piano Concerto. :D
