First things first, I’m so sorry for being MIA… I could try and make it better with excuses, but I won’t bore you! Anyway, I’m definitely going to get back into the blogging schedule. I really love blogging and I’m really grateful for the followers I have, so I’m not giving up on this blog.
I’ve been wanting to do this post for so long now, after My Musical Theatre Life‘s blog post inspired me to do something like this.
You’ve probably had enough of me blabbing on about my favourite musicals, so today I asked everyone in my family about their favourite musicals!
My Fair Lady
“I always wanted to sing ‘On the street where you live’ live on stage. Henry Higgins’ songs are great, I love the irony of ‘Why can’t the English?’ and ‘A Hymn to Him (why can’t a woman be more like a man?). I also love the touching sentiment of ‘I’ve grown accustomed to her face’.
I completely agree! It’s really fun to watch it with Dad because he knows nearly every word! I love every song, I also love how feisty Eliza Doolittle is! A timeless musical….
“Les Miserable has ‘Bring Him Home’ in, which is one of my favourite songs. I’ve seen it live so it always makes me appreciate musicals on the stage. Another reason I love it is because for my birthday and anniversary one year, the kids all bought the dvd for me and we watched it together.”
Such an amazing musical! I’m very jealous she has seen it on stage… I think it’s one of the most powerful musicals there are. It’s incredible that they can express these emotions with no dialogue, but with only singing and beautiful music.
La La Land
“A near perfect modern spin on an decades old art form!”
I absolutely love this musical. The story. The musical. Everything! The Audition song has to be my favourite.
Singin’ In The Rain
“Singing in the rain!! It’s da best as der is splashing n water n rain n singing, it’s just da bezt!”
Josh is 24 and in University. Yet he still can never give me a serious answer. But I also love singing in the rain! I love that it’s such a happy musical. A classic.
“I’m going to say Mary Poppins as it reminds me of my childhood and brings back lovely memories.”
I can’t remember this musical much because it’s been so long since I’ve last seen it. but I do remember how magical it is. It’s a mysterious yet really upbeat musical.
“I love Moulin Rouge! Romance, comedy, timeless songs and a tragic ending. An emotional rollercoaster!”
I’ve never actually seen this musical, or know any songs from it, But it sounds good!
“Oliver. I love the time period and the songs. It’s gritty and horrible at times but then they all break out in song. Amazing!”
I watched Oliver! for the first time not long ago. I was amazed. The story had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The music and choreography brings a whole new amazing element to Charles Dickens story. So good!
Sunshine On Leith
“My favourite musical is Sunshine On Leith, because it’s the best and it makes me happy!”
If I’m honest, this is definitely not one of my favourites. But she loves it! It’s definitely a happy musical…
I can’t possibly choose! All of them are my favourite.
I really enjoyed writing this post, I found it really interesting to find out their favourite musicals. It’s crazy how one musical can mean something really special to one person. It’s why I love them so much!
