I'd forgotten about this thread...

I can add a couple of plays I saw on holiday in the summer:

The Importance of Being Ernest
The Real Thing (Tom Conti)

And a musical I saw over Christmas:

My Fair Lady (Christopher Cazenove, Amy Nuttall, Russ Abbott, Hannah Gordon, Steven Moore)

And in my earlier list I forgot Bombay Dreams, which I saw on the West End a couple of years ago.

I saw this in June and I agree with you. I was very disappointed when I read they were closing it so soon. Especially since it ran for a couple of years in London.

Actually on Broadway in New York, I've seen The Producers, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. I absolutely loved the latter; I got a free CD because I went last may, and I listen to it all the time.

I've seen The Lion King in Toronto. The whole thing is beautiful. Especially the first moments, when the sun is rising, it's just awesome.

I just came back from a trip to New York and I saw two musicals.

I finally got to see Avenue Q. At first I was shocked seeing the bad language and the adult situations the puppets were doing. But I learned to overlook it and enjoy the music, the storyline, and all the characters that were really enjoyable. And I thought it was interesting how the puppeteers were seen on stage and how they can throw their voice to a puppet they're not controlling. And how they had little cartoon spoofs of Sesame Street and the Electric Company on the side TV screens. Despite the adult humor, it's a really cool show. :smile:

And I saw Wicked. It was an amazing wonderful story on how the Wicked Witch and Glinda of Oz came to be. And we end up seeing the Witch in a different point of view. The music was awesome and we learn how certain things in Oz came to be. I recommend go seeing Wicked if you're ever in New York. :smile:

This past May I finally got to go see Wicked in Chicago, with Carole Shelley in the role of Madame Morrible. Seeing it onstage has only reaffirmed my love for it.

And I'm in agreement with other Wicked fans that its an absolute crime that the song "Wicked Witch of the East" was left off the soundtrack.
