Little Shop. It's so deliciously dark but has some nice moments in it.

I saw The Phantom of the Opera in Antwerp. It was entertaining, but musicals aren't my thing really.

I vote for Calamity Jane. Although i wouldnt classify Grease 2 a musical, more like a crime against Humanity, nor Buffy, but it was very good.

I'm not really into musicals at all, people just don't start singing at every possible opertunity. I haven't really seen many musicals that I can remember, but I was just wondering, would 'The Wizard of Oz' be classed as a musical? If it is, then I pick that  smile

According to the IMDb, it's a "Family / Fantasy / Adventure / Musical"...so I guess so

I don't know if you'd count it as a proper musical, but The Blues Brothers is probably my favourite.  smile

I haven't seen many musicals, I've seen about 3 in the above list. I did like West Side Story and Grease. The only musical I've seen on stage is Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat, and I'd really like to see Miss Saigon   smile

"The Blues brothers" for me too.

Although "The Little Shop of Horror" movie with Rick Moranis and Steve Martin were hillarious.

If you had asked last year, I probably would have said Grease or The Sound of Music. But Now I have to vote other and say Chicago.

On reflection, I quite liked Blood Brothers - not the best muscial of all time, but it was OK...

I'd hate to revive an old dead thread, but i couldn't help but think about musicals today... i don't UNDERSTAND THEM?.. i mean.. what sort of normal person just breaks out into song in the middle of the street? and how the hell do the other people know the dance moves??

it freaks me out..
the best musical is the blues brothers... because you can SEE the people playing instruments and it's about a band, so it's more believable than the others...

except for the wizard of oz, and rocky horror... you know they weren't shooting for any sort of realism...

phew..i just had to get that out...

A person in a musical.

Because it's a musical.

One doesn't see musical for cohesive plots or sense making. The story's just a vehicle for the songs, and silly set pieces.

Can't think of any off hand that I'm really into...

South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
You can't beat a singing, dancing, animated Saddam Hussein, unless it's with a singing, dancing, marionette Kim Jong-Il.

I am a big fan of both of the Horrors in the poll though...if we're going for actual stage musicals, I'll vote Little Shop.

And airbagfailure, no musical shoots for any sort of realism.  Basically, if the cast is singing, and it's not a show about musicians (and even some that are: see Chicago) it's supposed to be symbolic or just entertaining or some crap.  Don't think too hard about entertainment.  Unless it's Futurama.

Out of the hundreds of great musicals out there my top 5 are:

1. Some like it Hot
2. Singin in the Rain
3. Easter Parade
4. On the Town
5. Wizard of Oz
5.1: Top Hat
5.2: White Christmas

They're all there, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe.

I do like the extravagant set pieces, one particular one springs to mind, the 20 minute ballet sequence near the end of An American in Paris....

Also, never leave out good old Busby Berkley, who coreographed hundreds of chorus girls into great visial patterns on the stage.

I voted for Annie.  I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

I'm suprised no one voted for West Side Story.  That's probally my second favorite.
