Les Miserables Report Abuse
So there's the last one that says Les, it supposed to be for this one. Anyway. Les Miserables.. WOO. This is FANTASTIC. The Musical is the longest running on broadway since 1985. It is BEAUTIFUL. I have not seen it on Broadway, but I have seen the live recording on DVD. I plan on seeing it on my next trip to NYC. But from what I saw, it's FANTASTIC. This has such a moving story and the compositsion and music is perfect. Like Phantom of the Opera, I cried forever after watching it. The plot is just fantastic, the music, is beautiful, and the characters are all great. The hit song 'I Dreamed a Dream' is an absolute miracle work of art. IF you haven't seen it you must. It's very good, hahah! More than good! PERFECT. It is so heart-warming and it will leave you stunned ("Oh my god, I just watched that? It was stunning! *Sniff-sniff*) I hail this musical. Do you hear the people sing? What a great song. GO AND SEE IT. I can't wait for the movie. I hope it'll be as great as the muscial. It's very powerful. G O A N D S E E I T

The Phantom of the Opera Report Abuse
This one is supposed to be #1. And it completley deserves it too. If you have not seen Phantom then you better hustle your butt over to New York City and go to the Majestic Theater. I mean really, words' can not explain how much this musical as mean't to me and people all across the world. Set in the Opera Populaire in Paris, 1870, this story follows the current event's happening at the Opera House. And deep in the Labyrinth of it all, lies The Phantom of the Opera (Erik, though he is never adressed as Erik in the musical). A man hiding from the world because of his distorted face, writing beautiful music and giving lessons to young soprano, Christine Daae, though she as never seen him, Chrsitine believes that the man giving her lessons is her 'Angel of Music', an Angel Christine's deceased father siad he would give her. But the Phantom can no longer hide his love and obsession for her. Christine's old childhood flame, Raoul, shows up at the Opera house has the new manager. Him and Christine immediatley find thier childhood ways back, falling in love. This, creates the genius inside the Phantom to turn into madness. When all he want's is love and the smallest bit of compassion.... I've siad to much. But you must see it. It will change you.. I'm serious. You'll cry. I cried forever. It'll inspire you, it'll change your view's on people, music, and love. IT WILL CHANGE YOU. I love it with all my life. I was singing the songs for a long time. I recommend, read the book, then watch the musical, then watch the movie (2004) there all great. BUT YOU MUST WATCH THE MUSCIAL. I SWARE YOU'LL BE A DIFFERENT PERSON WHEN YOU WALK OUT OF THAT THEATER,

RENT Report Abuse
This highly acclaimed broadway rock/opera muscial spectacular combines everything a good muscial needs: comedy, drama, a SPECTACLUAR cast, moving characters, and good music :) Based in 1989, this story follows a group of young kids in the time of the AIDS epedemic. Each of them have their own story that is sure to make you cry, rise your spirits, and lighten your mind. We can all relate to RENT. There is a part of it all that we can all find ourselves realted too. "Give into love or live in fear..." "No day but today."
