Don’t know about you, but I love a musical.
I don’t mind whether it’s at the theatre or a movie version. When I was creating my list, I started to wonder what consititutes a musical. Apparently, the definition is:
A play or movie in which singing and dancing play an essential part.
Now that’s cleared up here we go with my top 20 – not in any order of preference as that would make my head fall off if I tried to rank them as well. You may think differently of course, I couldn’t possibly comment. Feel free to post yours or disagree ;).
- Fiddler on the Roof – best bit
- West Side Story
- Sound of Music
- Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
- Singin’ in the Rain
- My Fair Lady
- The Producers
- Annie Get Your Gun
- Chorus Line
- Phantom of the Opera
- Bugsy Malone
- South Pacific
- Moulin Rouge
- Rocky Horror Picture Show
- Les Miserables
Ok there’s loads I missed off. Then I think some are theatre shows rather than musicals. Also, are some just films with singing in them? Plus, a la Les Miserables – they sing the whole thing. There’s hardly any talking involved! Argghhh it’s a minefield making bloody lists ;).
