Oh Hey.

So clearly it's been awhile.

And this morning, I happened upon a post that got the wheels turning. Favorite musicals? Oh, so so many. So let's talk about them. And watch some. And sing along.

First of all. We have to talk about this.

Don't worry, I've only watched it like 30 times. At least. 
I mean, really. I can't get enough of it. 
Maybe I tear up a little bit each time I watch it... It's fine.
Christmas can't come soon enough. 

Clearly, this is one of my favorites. 

And now, in no particular order (because that is FAR too hard), here are some others that I adore. 

Into the Woods

I couldn't choose a favorite song, so luckily I found a medley from the Tony Awards. 
Mostly, I LOVE Stephen Sondheim. Everything he writes. 
I love the fairy tales that are incorporated into the show. 
It's funny, romantic, but then sad and dramatic. 
The first time I saw this show, I apparently saw the children's version, which is just the first act. Then when I saw the full thing, I was in shock and horrified.
And now, I can't get enough of it. 

Sweeney Todd

Again, with the Sondheim.
The man's brilliant I tell you. 
The first time I saw this show was live in LA on a choir trip. 
I'll admit that I fell asleep for a few minutes, but that was because we'd been at Disneyland since 7:30 that morning. 
Dark room, comfy chairs, and teenagers after that is not the best combination. 
But now, I've seen it live again and the movie countless times (shh...) and I can't get over it. 

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Quite the change, yes?
This one is the epitome of cheesy musicals, and I love it. 
Who can resist seven rugged mountain men? 
This is one of the shows I always wanted to be in. 


First of all, let's just talk about Adam Pascal.
And how much I love him. (he'll make another appearance in a minute)
And the show. I mean, come on. 
Tim Rice and Elton John are a perfect duo. 
I love the story, the music, everything.

Phantom of the Opera

It's cliche, I know. But I don't care. 
I saw this live in Vegas this last March and my love was confirmed.
If you ever get to see it live, don't hesitate. 

Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Cheesy and cliche, again, but whatever.
This was the first show I was ever in, and it sparked my love of theatre. 
And yes, I still have all the colors memorized. 


No show makes me cry quite like this one. 
And Adam Pascal.


Do we need to elaborate on this one?
If I were to go to New York right now, this is the show I'd see. 

Let's be real. I could on with these forever. 
So I'll stop now. 
You're welcome?
What are your favorites??

Show some love and leave your thoughts!
