    Rent is my favorite Broadway play.

    I liked Evita - the movie version, but never saw the musical live.

    Opera, well I didnt really like opera until I worked at the opera company! And so I got to see Carmen for free, and I really like it! The music is lovely, and I read the book in french class!

    My favorite ballet that I've ever seen was Romeo and Juliet

    Musicals...I used to watch a lot of musicals when I was little! The theater ones, I mean. I saw TOMMY in New York City (by Pete Townsend, but without the WHO of course!) I like Les Miserables, I liked the Phantom of the Opera too. Well, there are a lot I like!

    Theater...well I LOVE plays. I saw some Shakespeare ones on a school trip once. I saw this other one though by Tom Stoppard, I think it was called The Real Thing (?) Oh and I saw "This is Our Youth" in London with Kiernan Culkin, Colin Hanks and Alison Lohman.

    There are a lot of plays that I've READ that have been really good, I wish I could have seen them!

    I won't see this but I like the idea of Frank Gorsham playing George Burns.

    My favorite musical that I've seen on stage/broadway is
    Les Miserables. Absolutely beautiful. I mean, I've only been listening to the cast recording. But to finally see it on stage. Whoa.

    And Into the Woods. Bernadette Peters!!

    I want to see The Producers. I NEED to see Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane perform. Sigh.

    Phantom of the Opera-I love this so much- it is a bit of a hobby. I collect Phantom items-the playbills, books, etc. I had the musicians at my wedding play many songs from it before the ceremony-"Music of The Night" is my favorite.

    Les Miserables is my favourite musical and my favourite opera is currently A Masked Ball. Although I have never actually seen it performed, I think I would love the ballet Giselle. Oh, and even though I didn't like the movie, I really enjoyed reading Amadeus.
