Topic: Anyone like musicals?
Hey there, I was just wondering if anyone else here on Bobafett.com has a passion/obsession for musicals... And please, if you're not a fan of musical, don't waste your time spamming about how 'gay' they are. Thank you. Sorry, it's just that many people who haven't seen/heard musicals tend to have a stereotypical opinion on them for no reason other than the fact that they are ignorant.
Anyways, I guess I'll start off with some of my favorite musicals...
My number one favorite of all time is Phantom of the Opera. Now, how can you like musicals and NOT love PotO? It's amazing, ever since a sang it for a Christmas concert in 7th grade I've been in love with the music. It wasn't until I saw the 2004 movie that I became a true fan... even though now I would never listen to Gerard Butler and I am very faithful to the Original Cast recording with Michael Crawford as the Phantom <3. Hm, no, I've never seen this (or any other musical) on broadway, but my mom promised she's take me before I go to college! I can't wait. (She got me the Carlton Ornament for Christmas!)
Okay, I also love the Rocky Horror Show. I saw a live preformance this year with my best friend around Halloween, and I hadn't even seen the movie yet! It was quite an experience, let me tell you. But, yes, I've seen the movie now, very cool.
This one is rather obscure here in the US. It's a German musical written by Jim Steinman, who wrote "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and Meat Loaf's songs. It's just amazing. I got the CD for Christmas and can't stop listening. I want to sing along but I know NOTHING of the German language! XD Steve Barton (RIP was also Raoul in PotO) was the lead as Graf von Krolock and I'm just stunned by how well he can sing in both German and English!
Well, I hope ATLEAST one other person on here likes Musical and shares there favorites... I spent like 10 mins typing this up, lol.
