OC Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome to the kbin.social/m/Musicals magazine

Fremde, etranger, stranger. Happy to see you. Bleibe, reste, stay.

Please take a moment to introduce yourself.

If you're not sure what to write, here are some prompts. Feel free to answer any, all or none of these:

  • Favourite musical?
  • First musical you saw?
  • Bucket list musical? (A show you've never seen but really want to.)
  • Most memorable musical experience?
  • What are you hoping to get out of this community?
  • Anything else you feel like adding.

On the other hand, if you'd rather just let your posts and comments speak for you and skip the introductions, then, as Jack's Mother says in Into the Woods: "That's okay too..."


Hello! I’m still fairly new in my journey into musical theater but I’ll add my answers!

  • Favorite musical(s): Beetlejuice, Mrs. Doubtfire, Wicked
  • Least favorite musical: Moulin Rouge (the set was stunning but the show was…meh)
  • First musical: Spamalot (can you tell I like comedies?)
  • Bucket list musical: Urinetown
  • Most memorable experience: Getting very creepily hit on by a middle aged recent divorcee throughout the entirety of Tootsie. I was 22 at the time and she was in her early 50s.

Hoping to have lots of good discussions in this community and to learn more about shows I’ve never heard of!

@sh00g Welcome! There's a "whole new world" of musicals out there. May you find many more favourites.

Urinetown gets done fairly regularly by various companies, so you'll undoubtedly have a chance to see it at some point.

I'm sorry this happened to you. Makes going to the theatre memorable for all the wrong reasons. If this ever happens again, I'd suggest telling an usher - it's definitely unacceptable behaviour. (Not even if that middle-aged divorcee had turned out to be Dustin Hoffman or Santino Fontana in drag.)

Gypsy with Bette Midler on TV back in the '90s. i owned it on VHS. such nostalgia.

@itsAsin Such a good show. Gypsy is often described as having the perfect book of a musical.

Have you seen any of the other filmed versions of Gypsy? There's another movie with Rosalind Russell from the 60s, and a pro-shot of the 2015 London production with Imelda Staunton.

(I happened to be at the performance they filmed... though it's also possible they shot it over several nights.)
