A Fiddler on the Roof and almost any Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire flick.

Singing In The Rain.....

"I'm singin' in the rain
Just singin' in the rain,
What a glorious feeling,
And I'm happy again.
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark, up above,
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love.

Let the stormy clouds chase.
Everyone from the place,
Come on with the rain
I have a smile on my face.
I'll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin', singin' in the rain."

Simple but so very classy

I've only seen one or two live.

My favorite so far has been "Camelot."

I did, however, get to see Mandy Pitinkin perform live awhile back. BEST thing I've seen in my life.

He performed a couple pieces from the famous Broadway stories he's done in the past.

My all time favorite is "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" with Zero Mostel.

Hands down Les Miserables! I've seen it 6 times so far including once in NYC on Broadway. It's returning to Toronto this fall and I've already purchased my tickets yet again!

I am not a huge musical fan, but there have been some that I have enjoyed. My all time favorite has to be Fiddler On The Roof though.

Love it.

Fiddler On The Roof is certainly one. But the first one I saw when I was much younger was West Side Story when It first came out. That one sold me on musicals.

I've seen so many musicals, most of which I loved. "Cats" and "Wicked" were both great but, my favorite has to be Green Day's, "American Idiot!" I saw it closing night in San Diego. I wish I'd seen it sooner so I could have gone back to watch it again!!! "Billy Elliot" would be a close second.
