When Phantom of the Opera, Chicago and Evita were at the movies I had paid full price 8x each to see them.  Had a chance to see Phantom live 2x in Detroit and once in Vegas.  I am a huge musical fanatic and could watch them all day long.  Star

Sadly I never cared for them.  My now-late (dark) mother used to take me to see The Sound of Music when I was 5 or 6. I never could get into musicals.  I was dissapointed that the South Park Movie was done as a musical.

Not really a big 'Musical' fan, although I enjoyed Sweeny Todd, starring Johnny Depp.

I am! I love theatre in general.  It was my minor in college and I loved every minute of being backstage/working on the plays.  My two fave musicals are Hair and Guys and Dolls. :)

I like theater, too, but I'm not so crazy about musicals...which is ironic because every production I've done since graduating college have been musicals! And I can't sing to save my life! I sound like a goat being slaughtered.

Since I work for these people, I get to see free shows and musicals all the time.

It seems to me that women and gay men love musicals.

I never fancied them myself. I prefer hearing a story spoken rather than hear it sung to me.

There are a few that I have enjoyed though, Chicago & Gigi come to mind. Yet I don't fancy the whole Oklahoma sort of musical.

Even as a kid, whenever I would see a movie musical on TV, I couldn't get past the idea that there'd be musical accompaniment to the songs, but often not a musician in sight.  It was as if the music was coming down from the heavens.  But if I can accept the premise behind movies about the living dead roaming the earth, I guess others can suspend their disbelief for music descending from the heavens.

Not a fan of the musical but I'd love to see Jersey Boys.

I wouldn't mind seeing that, either.  I always liked The Four Seasons.

No sh*t, Chef!
I had a hard time even mentioning 'Sweeny Toddd', but it is SO DARK that I think it generally would scare all of them away.

Then again, there were always a few OTHER 'musicals' that were a hoot:

1.) Burton's 'Nightmare Before Halloween' (EXCELLENT)
 
2.) Rocky Horror Picture Show...

I dig them fine myself. I have been in some. My wife is a bigger fan, I've seen some good ones, the last one I saw was Spring Awakening. I saw Phantom in Sydney, Australia all by myself but it was a nice evening of relaxing on the town for me and I loved it.

Mainly I saw them when I was little with my family. we went to a lot of plays, ballet, and performances in general.

I love that response Pa! I suppose it's rather obvious that women love musicals...

I was given tickets to a Broadway play years ago when I was in NYC on business.  It was "La Cage aux Folles" starring Van Johnson.  We went, but Johnson was ill, so there was an unknown stand-in.  Disappointing.

We went out at intermission to have a cigarette, and two "fellas" were standing next to us.  One said to the other:

"Isn't this wonderful!  It's just like us!"

We decided to skip the second half and go to Dangerfield's.

C'mon, Hooty - tell the truth...did the Hootette enjoy and discussion with them? Was she even a *little* upset when you made it known, "...why, LOOK AT THE TIME! We gotta go!"?
It's o.k. - I understand (I would've done EXACTLY the same thing!)

In the 9th grade (1969), my English class tried to convince our teacher, Miss Meschersky, to take us to see Oh Calcutta! in NYC.  She wouldn't.  We ended up seeing some cultural thing at the Garden State Arts Center instead. 
 
No one at that show was naked.  Unhappy

Back in the 70's I dated a girl who's father, an ex-Marine drill instructor who fought in Korea, played the part of a constable or something in a local production of Fiddler On The Roof.
 
We went to see it & it was really good. They had a three piece chamber music group providing the instrumental accompaniment.
 
Her dad was a huge, big bellied guy who always shaved his head. His costume consisted of black pants, jack boots, a red tunic & a great big black fake moustache.
 
He looked like something right out of Czarist Russia.
 
It was a lot of fun & we went out to dinner (her & I, not her dad) afterward.
 
I also enjoyed the movie version of "On The Town".
