  • My son is really too young to go to a normal musical, although my MIL wants to take him to see Yo Gabba Gabba live in December when they come to our town. Heh. He'll be almost 3 at that point.

    I personally love musicals and have seen Wicked, along with several other productions. It's like pulling teeth to get my hubby to agree to go so I jump on any opportunity I am given to see a show with him. I loved Wicked.

  • We have season tickets to summer stock this year. So far there have only been two shows -- Beauty and the Beast and Titanic, but we' looking forward to Damn Yankees, Cats, The Sound of Music, Footloose and Showboat.

    My kids are 13 and 9, so well able to sit through a performance and we go to a lot of shows, symphonies and plays. They love it!

  • So glad I'm not the only one who hated the book. I kept thinking, "How did they make a musical out of this?!?"
