Musicals might be the most wonderful thing. Growing up I would watch The Sound of Music, the play version of Peter Pan, and Singing in the Rain as often as my family would let me. I was mesmerized by Camelot and my love for Richard Harris began. I liked South Pacific, The Music Man, and especially my grandfather singing along with Fiddler on the Roof. When I was at BYU best show I saw was a musical: Thoroughly Modern Millie. I also saw Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Newies for the first time while at BYU. Then there are Disney movies which are basically musicals (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mary Poppins, all the classic cartoons) and I've seen Broadway touring The Lion King twice, andThe Phantom of the Opera. It is cheesy but completely true: I love musicals!
Recently, I was introduced to another musical Into the Woods and in a couple months I'm going to see Wicked :] at the IMB Performing Arts Center (aka the Opera House). This past week while Kelli was in town I was on a musical music kick. Kelmo I'm sorry I got them stuck in your head listening to the same dozen songs over and over again. But the kiddos really seem to enjoy them as well, and Alex will try to sing along to several of them and its like the best thing ever with his hard-of-hearing-three-year-old speech impediment.
Anyways I thought I would share my love with ya all. So below is a list of some of my all time favorite musical songs. Enjoy these nasty earworms :))
