Musicals ?
 
Apart from The Blues Brothers, the mind boggles.

Opera and Ballet, as well. What the f*** are they all about?

Would anyone class The Commitments as a musical? But have to agree, generally musicals a right crock of s.hite.

Apart from Oliver.

Love The Blues Brothers,fantastic sound track, as is The Commitments.

My step daughter is somewhat obsessed withy Beyonce - you know,teenage girls have their role models and all that - forced me to sit through Dream Girls.Never have I heard so many songs in one film - it really did do my head in.

musicals I'll grant you, not my cup of tea. Opera however is one of mans great artistic achievments...ballet, lovely music, men in tights nah, ballerinas however :)

How can anyone possibly not like opera.......the mind boggles :confused:


(ok ok so musicals are modern opera and opera was/is musicals, blah blah, yet to hear/see a good "musical" though)

Why does every opera include some bloke (who's recently been dumped by his girlfriend) reading out loud a letter from his mum?
