My favourite play is The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams. I absolutely love Williams' play and find him to be such a beautiful playwright who knows how to pull on my heartstrings just the right way. What I love about Glass Menagerie is that every single character is tragically beautiful in their own special way and how there are so many little things that have so much meaning (such as the rainbow scarf and the glass animal figurines). Talking about Tennessee Williams just riles me up!
My favourite musical is Next To Normal. Not as mainstream as other ones, but agan, tragically beautiful (do I see a pattern here?). It's kinda like one big soap opera...With some freakin' amazing music. I would definitely look it up for anyone who is a fan of great drama and passion.... But lately I've been on a Green Day's American Idiot fix, since I just saw it last week and a In The Heights fix since we're performing a medley in my school's Show Choir.
The Twelfth Night from Stratford Shakespeare Theater this year- it was amazing!
I absolutely love Newsies (I recently saw it on Broadway and it's stunning).
I also have a deep love for Les Miserables.
Plays: Romeo and Juliet and Our Town
Musical: ... I can't. But Next to Normal and Spring Awakening are up there. But AH DON'T MAKE ME PICK.
I saw the Sping Awakening too! But I prefer the text over the musical though. What was your favourite part? Maybe I'll give the musical another try :)
Oh my gosh, there are so many D: However, at the moment I'm torn between Chicago and Singing in the Rain.
Play: Titus Andronicus
Musical: Avenue Q
I love Mozart - the Rockmusical by Silvester Levay and Michael Kunze. It tells the life of Mozart and has everything you'd wish for in a musical. The texts are awesome, the music is awesome and hell, did I love that dreadlocked Mozart!
This year I saw the most amazing production of "Das weite Land" or "The Vast Domain" by Arthur Schnitzler. It used shadows, light and music very cleverly to set an often uncomfortable and sometimes even threatening atmosphere. It had splendid actors too. I could watch it over and over again.
Spring Awakening or Les Miserables.
I saw The L:ion king in 2011 and Wicked in 2009 those by far are my favourite musicals XD Play wise I saw Dirty dancing in June and that was amazing but Journey's End is a defiantly favourite it always makes me cry.
My favourite plays include the Lieutenant of Inishmore by Michael McDonagh (can I actually just claim Michael McDonagh's entire opus), Hamlet, The Winter's Tale, Cyrano de Bergerac and Metamorphasis by Mary Elizabeth Zimmerman.
My favourite musicals are Les Miserables, Parade, Marie Christine, Carousel and Follies
LES MISERABLES ALL THE WAY. December 14th the musical movie comes out-- be there.
