    What fun!
    I completely agree with you on the Musicals I Hate category. I have no desire to see B of M either and once saw Cedar City High's production of "Grease" many years ago with bad sound, off key orchestra and the poor boy playing Danny had laryngitis. They should just stick to Shakespeare.

    Overrated Musical
    "Wicked" basically "Frozen" for grown-ups.
    also "The Sound of Music" because the movie version will always be better.

    Underrated
    "The Fantasticks" because we did that one at my High School in 1991 and rocked it!

    Musical I Love the Most
    "Oklahoma" Rogers and Hammerstein knew their stuff. I never tire of seeing it performed live.

    Musical I Cherish
    "Hamilton" for redeeming us all from "The B of M" and soon as those 2018 tickets go on sale at Eccles-look out people!

    Guilty Pleasure
    "The Phantom of the Opera" yes I plan on seeing that one too next year at Eccles.
