Oh man, please tell me this didn't begin with the Beatles or Stones post I started. (I know how mjp likes to split threads) :eek: I can't be held responsible for the ugly turn it might've taken. (now I know how Kurt Cobain felt)
If anyone's looking for me, I'll be up in the quest house ... click
I'm not quite sure if I'd classify it as a musical, as I don't know how to classify it. Like much of Floyd's music...
(CRB, saw you mentioned this in another post. I almost posted this here yesterday, but got caught up in life's entanglements...great suggestion; methinks here is the place. So tear it up; or tear it down...)
I remember seeing Tommy for the first time when I was like 8 or nine years old. It was when HBO was still called Hollywood Home Theater. I stood in front of that TV for 2 hours with my jaw on the ground. Uncle Ernie; The Acid Queen; Anne Margret humping pillows while covered in baked beans... No child should be exposed to such things:eek: It really freaked me out in a totally fascinated way, I believe it may have led to my delinquincy...;)
I still love the songs, and will watch it whenever it is on.CRB:)
Yes Tommy was always one of my fav's. With that being said, I can't believe that we are 50 post's into this thread without mention of Hedwig and the Angry Inch! It doesn't get much better then that.......
I watched Nine, finally, with Daniel Day Lewis... and, well, yes the music was horrible and ridiculous and Contini would turn over in his grave. But the story line, and the direction of it I actually enjoyed. But that's a whole nother thread again. However - it fits, as it is a musical, just a bad one.
I had season tickets to the ahmanson and mark taper forum for a few years, and caught the Sweeny Tood production back in 2008(cast pictured below.) I thought it was horrible, almost couldn't stand to finish it. The Burton movie, of course I loved. But I'm sure Burton could film Johnny Depp blowing his nose and I scream OSCAR!!!!!!!!!!! Other than that, don't know much else about musicals, well except Grease the movie is one of my all time faves!
