Linking up with Fitness Friday, Follow Through Friday & Finish Line Friday.
- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat: I have seen over a dozen different productions of this musical. It's amazing how I see something new in each one. I've seen high school productions, community productions, Broadway tours ... and as mentioned above with LesMiz, both Hale Theater and Tuachan have put it on as well.
- Pirates of Penzance: Although I have seen several live productions of this musical, I LOVE the movie version. Kevin Kline, Angela Lansbury, Linda Ronstadt all do such a great job. Another benefit of the DVD version is subtitles! It's so hard to catch everything in a live performance.
- Seven Brides for Seven Brothers: I really like the story and music here ... it's a show I would have loved to be IN, but figured I never would make it because all the girls in it dance. I'm not a dancer. I remember seeing this up at Sundance ... the "Lonesome Polecat" song was done off the stage, in the woods ... I've always remembered that. I love men singing harmonies...
- The Slipper and the Rose: I haven't seen this musical on stage ... I don't even know if it has been performed on stage or if it is simply a movie. A family I used to babysit had this video. I loved it SO much. When it was released on DVD some years ago I was thrilled to be able to finally get my own copy. I love the music and the retelling of the Cinderella story.
