Haha exactly the same for me - Billy Elliot just blows me away every time I see it, Avenue Q is so fresh and funny with such a talented cast, and then Les Mis is just always gonna be one of my faves...

I haven't seen all of them, but I didn't just go and vote for all the ones I have seen!

I love Wicked, also voted for Les Miz, Phantom and Evita as I really enjoyed all of them and would love to go back and see them again.

Its funny how your opinions about shows change, mine certainly do anyway. If you'd asked me about Billy Elliot within the few weeks after I'd seen it, I would've said fantastic show, I'd love to see it again. If you'd asked me about Evita I would've said great but I'm not that bothered about going again. Months later, my opinions have totally changed, I really want to see Evita again and I don't really care about Billy Elliot anymore. Also the case with The Lion King, it was one of the first shows I saw and I raved about it for ages, I was desperate to see it again. But now, I couldn't care less about it, I'd rather not go and see it again to be honest.

Shows like Phantom and Les Miz are timeless though.

It's strange - I looked through that list and thought, yup I have seenthe vast majority of them and yet I can't say that I am a huge fan of any of them.I loved Avenue Q but found it too long, I enjoyed all the crowd pleasers like wicked and poppins etc but there are none that get me really stirred up. I think perhaps if Sunday in the Park was still on that wouldn't be the case. So a question.....Can you grow out of commercial musical theatre? Is it like developing a taste for olives once you hit 30? wink.gif

the one person who voted for dirty dancing should be set on fire.
He used to call me Blue Roses.

Saw Daddy Cool last night. I think it's wise that it's not included on this list! (Plus it closes on Saturday!).

I can't be bothered to register just yet so I guess my votes don't go to the poll but at present, with the cast it has, PORGY AND BESS is the best musical in the West End imo. Overall I think LES MIS is the best show but not with the present cast. SPAMALOT is also fantastic. LITTLE SHOP is good fun and WICKED has elements of entertainment.
