    I think the first musical I saw was Sound of Music, when a local theater group put it on. My 6th grade teacher was in the cast, and he got us invited to a dress rehersal.

    On Broadway I have seen Grease and The Music Man. An interesting anecdote about the Music Man..it was a short lived run with Dick Van Dyke in the lead. MANY years ago. For those familiar with the story..remember the little boy...played by Ron Howard in the movie? In this play, the boy was Christian Slater...age 6. Wish I had kept the playbill on that one.

    South Pacific, yes, most definitely. And Grease.

    And I used to love all the Gilbert and Sullivan productions I saw as a child.

    Oh, and I forgot Cats

    I ADORE Les Miserables!
    I saw it for the first time on Broadway, which was fabulous! and then about 15 times at The Palace Theatre in London.
    I think I must own every cd compilation and every video version available as well as the t-shirt, key ring, mug, poster, etc. Lol!

    I also love Phantom of the Opera and again have all the paraphernalia that goes with it.

    At school we performed Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, which I loved, and also Hip Hip Horatio which is about the love affair between Horatio Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton. Its a beautiful and funny musical with great lyrics by Tim Rice and i always wondered why it was never made into a stage play as I'm sure it would be loved by audiences!

    If anyone ever bumps into Cameron McKintosh or Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber, please ask them. Thanks!

    I admit that i've never seen a musical. That's my fault, musicals play in local theatre. Few people of my generation have seen a musical i think.

    How old are you? I'm 30. I've seen plenty of musicals, but I've seen the film versions a lot more than the stage versions. That's why most of the things I listed were from "movie musicals". You can list those to, they count!

    I forgot a favorite, Wicked! Saw it in NY, it was great. Listen to Wicked [Original Cast Recording]: http://www.napster.com/player/album/10812474
