Ahh thank you for this superlong post
I haven't seen Sweeny Todd, but that was on my list (that I'd forgotten), so thanks for bringing that up.
Gypsy I haven't seen nor heard much about, but I've heard some of the music and liked it, so I might check it out.
Chicago: Never seen it or heard music from it, but heard it was great
I do like Bye Bye Birdie, to an extent, but didn't include it in my list. The movie is god-awful, and the only reason I like it is because I performed in it (playing Birdie) which was a lot of fun...but the music is pretty bad, for the most part. And the story is pretty lame, in my opinion.
I wouldn't count The Blues Brothers as a musical, as epicawesome as it is.
I'm still amazed with myself that I haven't seen Fiddler yet, since it's such a famous/supposed to be great musical. Hmm.
NEWSIES: I haven't seen it yet, but I know of a few people that absolutely looooove it. So that goes on my list.
Cabaret is one of the weirdest experiences I've ever had. That movie is...strange. But some great music.
I've heard that Spring Awakening is pretty great, but so far it's only on Broadway (I believe), so no chance of me seeing it except in a crappy personinaudiencevideotaping it way. I was thinking of taking a trip to New York next summer with some friends, and Spring Awakening along with Legally Blonde and In The Heights would be the top 3 for us to see. I've only heard a couple songs out of In The Heights, but they also bothered me in a Rent sort of way, along with a mix of High School Musical (the oh-so stereotyped minorities living in a dilapidated place, Mexican-American so they're all bi-lingual POR FAVOR, and just all of that bothers me. Although I bet if I actually saw it I would like it.)
