What's your favorite musical?

My favorite is Sweeny Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet St. You can't beat cannabalism and revenge, and the music is incredible.

I love having the first reply.
The musicals that come to my mind at the moment are Chess and West Side Story, because I can't for the life of me remember the others that I've seen.

I have a particular fondness for A Little Night Music.

If this thread continues, I predict a lot of Sondheim. And horrifying, arbitrary bannings for anyone daring to push their stinky post-Evita Andrew Lloyd Webber on us.

The Music Man. The first musical I ever saw, and then the first I saw live on Broadway. It remains my all-time favorite.

Also Sweeney Todd. It's musically brilliant, witty, technically inventive, and really funny to boot.

—Alorael, who also likes Les Misérables. It's less funny and witty, but the two are really neck and neck for body counts, especially when you correct for cast size and start giving bit parts values less than one. (Three-fifths?)

Definetly the Phantom of the Opera. It's got tradgedy, love, death, and crazy opera house owners!

Phantom's good... seen it live a few times. Wicked wasn't all that it was cracked up to be, but still rather good. As for a favorite... probably something like A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, or How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. But then again, I have great memories from working on Guys & Dolls back at my high school... it's a difficult call.

Least favorite is another matter, and somewhat easily resolved: Cats.

The only musical I've seen is 1776, and I like it. I'd like to see Les Miserabes, if only because Ash shoved the topic in my face a few months back. :P

Les Misérables, Spamalot, and Avenue Q are probably my favorite musicals.

Phantom of the Opera.
Wicked and Les Mis are on the to-see list; Wicked because of my GF, and Les Mis because of all of the fuss.

The Silent Assassin has a particular fondness for Fiddler on the Roof.
Granted, he's never seen a performance on Broadway.

I always like comedy musicals like Fiddler on the Roof, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Spamalot, and The Producers. I prefer a laugh between the songs. I forgot The Boys from Syracuse *Shakespear* is another.

I really can't stand them, personally. Everytime I had to see bits and pieces I wish I wasn't there.

i haven't seen very many musicals- I call it Bubble Town for a reason- but Les Miserables was great. T have a poster and the soundtrack.
As for The Lion King, it was way better than the Disney movie and the costumes were fantastic. I want one.

Oh yes, I like Andrew Lloyd Webber as well. A few years ago I sung in the children's choir in a performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. It was Red and Yellow and Green and Brown and Scarlet and Black and Ochre and Peach and Ruby and Olive and Violet and Fawn and Lilac and Gold and Chocolate and Mauve and Cream and Crimson and Silver and Rose and Azure and Lemon and Russet and Grey and Purple and White and Green and Orange and Blue.
I know all that by memory now.

Edit: 400th post. Took me long enough to get there.

Jesus Christ Superstar is my favorite, though like most others who have gone through a musical theater phase in their upbringing, I've also at different points listened to Rent, Joseph, Phantom, and Sondheim to death. I also really enjoy Gilbert & Sullivan, and have played the role of the Defendant in Trial by Jury.

I think that the worst musical I've been subjected to is Oklahoma - it just hasn't weathered the times well at all.
