Jekyll and Hyde Report Abuse
The singing...the music! The tempo...the clever way haunting melodies turn up again throughout. I don't know anyone who has seen this (performed by a good cast) that hasn't gotten goosebumps. It should definitely at least be on the list! (Though it is my number one favorite of all time)

Very cool music. Story set in a catholic high school, centered on a gay relationship between Peter and Jason. Peter wants their relationship to be open and Jason does not. Great side stories, as well. Very little dialogue and the music flows nicely.
