Nessie Ok, I'm finding it hard to put these in order, but I trust there are lots of people out there who will help!

Ryan I cannot believe O'Neil is not on here!!!!!!!

Is now ... albeit, alas, on page 2!



message 4: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Amadeus--The play is not the film. Each is excellent, but the play's the thing.


message 5: by Reg (new)

Reg Tolley how about Journey's End


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Reg wrote: "how about Journey's End"

Feel free to add it!


message 7: by Annette (new)

Annette Is the list intended to include musicals, like Little Shop of Horrors, and many more?


message 8: by John (new)

John Burns Should les miserables be on here? It's a book, not a play. And if you mean the musical, then you should submit the musical, not the book.


message 9: by Rick (new)

Rick F. great list!


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

This list should be deleted. "Best Plays Ever" (plural, with an "s" at the end) does the very same thing and has double the votes.


message 11: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Kevin (10), see Rick(9). Rick (9), talk to Kevin (10).

Would that there were some way to COLLATE these two lists. Otis, are you listening ?

Make that "Jeff, are you listening," these days ... :(


message 15: by Samuel (new)

Samuel Les Misérables by Victor Hugo is not a play but instead a novel.
