Another Monday!...4M's




Here we are at another Monday. Whew, time has flown as it is the end of January already!  Well, as it is Monday, that means it is also Monday's Music Moves Me.  This week we have the theme of Broadway Musicals.


I thought I would give you a little tid bit about Broadway Musicals before I pile in with my selections for this week.


Broadway Musical Facts
1. The musicals started Sept. 12, 1866
2. The first musical in New York was The Black Crook
3. Vaudeville was the first of the musicals

4. Contrary to first thought, of A Chorus Line, the longest running musical is Phantom of the Opera. It has been running since 1988 without closing.

My picks
I have been privledged to see a couple of Broadway Musicals...just not on Broadway.  So, I do have a couple of favorites.


I really enjoy this one. I saw it in Colorado:



I saw this one at the Muny in St. Louis:



This is a favorite although, I actually have never seen it in theatre:

  5. Awesome picks! I loved Hair... well, actually, I didn't see it on Broadway; I saw my brother's high school version of it. They edited all the cursing out. And the nudity. The music was still awesome though, haha!
