Les mis and Lion king were cool, Les mis is such a good story, good music (I had to play the cello part on tuba, our school was short on money, I played the notes right, I just couldn't play quietly) The part with the little boy dying was so sad, I laughed when Javert died (mainly because it was played by my brother). And the lion king, c'mon, who wouldn't love the lion king?

I vowed never to post in the extended discussion again, but I love this thread.

Kinda sad, though, who likes theatre and there are only three pages.

For me, the best piece I've seen, by far, is The Black Rider (Music by Tom Waits, book by William Burroughs. I am not even kidding). I saw it at the Music Center in LA a couple years ago, and it was absolutely incredible. The whole thing was done with this expressionist, Weimar bent to it, but at the same time, played out like some dirty cartoon. The set was full of all these grotesque, oversized frames, and the lighting - THE LIGHTING. Suddenly a red crack would splash down the center of the stage, or a giant illuminated crossroads would appear, giant shadow puppets. There was one amazing scene where the leads are suspended above these glowing skulls. AND THE ORCHESTRA! Musical saw, ondes martenot, glass armonica, accordions and banjos and saxophones and theremins - it was unbelievable. I have never seen anything like it. I realize this post probably doesn't make too much sense, but, uh, if you ever find out that The Black Rider is playing in a city near you (I think it's touring right now), then, um, GOOOO!!

Aside from that - uh, yeah, I like Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill, and of course the bard. Any of Sartre's plays are really good - not many folks doing em, though. An awful lot of musicals are rather cookie cutter, it's true, so beyond a small handful - Fiddler on the Roof, Threepenny Opera, Lost in the Stars - I don't think there are too many it's vital to see if you don't already dig the theater. That's not to say they're not still really good and enjoyable. Just few are really revolutionary.

And as for me - um, going on thirteen years since my first experience with theater. I've acted, directed, played in the pit, stage managed, written, arranged. Uh, I wrote a little musical thingy back in high school. That was fun. Working on my second musical. Keep your eyes on those neon lights, kids. If you ever see a show brimming with cynicism and self loathing, you just might know where it came from!

I love everything about theatre. There's a lot of plays I want to see live. I went on a school field trip to see CATS in first grade.

I unfortunently went to a live show of "The Rocky Picture Horror Show" and i must say i'm scarred for life hahaha! I saw "The Lion King" and "Phantom Of The Opera" on Broadway in New York and i must say I LOVED them ecspecially the lion king. They really made it feel like you were appart of it. It was pretty awesome. At school i was never a part of drama but i did play in the pit band twice for the musicals once my junior year and the other my senior year. My junior year they did "Damn Yankees" and my senior year they did "Bye Bye Birdie" Both of them were Hysterically awesome.

I worked in croatian national theatre for over a year, so I have seen plaenty of dramas, operas and whatnot. Most of them were classics, which I prefere to modern pieces, and I cant stand musicals at all (dont like them. period.) What I really liked though, was trying to incoroprate problems of modern world in few hundred (or thousand) year old piece. It really shows why clasics are "classic" - when themes from greek dramas (many years B. C.) can succesfully address the same problems and questions in life or war we face today.
So what the producers did was: they left the text the same, but completely changed setting from for instance Troy to Afghanistan. I liked it.

I enjoy musicals a little too much (especially those by Andrew Webber) and I plan on participating in one myself.
I just need to fix my enunciation and projection.

But I love Theatre Arts in general; especially due to the fact that it is used as a medium for portraying religious, political, and social ideas/awareness, or purely for entertainment.

I'm more into Disney though. Scratch that, I LOVE DISNEY!
