Amelia Edwards | 14 comments Hey! So what's everyone's favorite shows? I really really like Pippin and Newsies, as well as Les Mis because it's a classic and it's just really good

Thanks for starting this thread! I have an obsession with Idina Menzel, so I love Wicked, Rent, If/Then and her other shows. I also love Matilda and Heathers.

There are still so many shows I need to see!

Amelia Edwards | 14 comments OH MY GOD I GOT TO MEET IDINA MENZEL! I went to New York this summer and saw If/Then and waited after at stage door and got her signature! She was absolutely amazing :D

Ashley Marie I've seen way too many shows. my top 5 is probably Les Miserables, Lion King, Aladdin, Wicked and Rent with an honorable mention for Phantom because how can you not.

Aladdin is the first show I've actually seen in New York and I loved it SO MUCH. So many colors and the dance sequences were incredible. We saw it two nights before James Monroe Iglehart won the Tony for Best Featured Actor <3 he's phenomenal. and I met Jonathan Freeman! Jafar has been my favorite Disney villain because of him since I was three years old :D

Newsies came through here last summer and I missed it, and then when I went to NYC they were closing but we were already seeing Aladdin so that was a no go too. I do love the soundtrack though. And Matilda looks like it would be a great show! I loved their Tony performance.

Ashley Marie I've seen Beauty & the Beast, Lion King, West Side Story, Phantom (x2), Les Miserables, Cats, Wicked (x2), RENT, American Idiot, Million Dollar Quartet, STOMP, Aladdin... I think that's it.

High school and college productions I've seen or been a part of include Oklahoma, Aida, Spitfire Grill, Anything Goes, Godspell, Sound of Music, and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

I try to see a show once a year anymore, but sometimes it doesn't happen. I'm hoping to see RAIN when its tour comes around this summer.
