Anyone else willing to admit to enjoying these?
I think Les Miserables is musically completely brilliant and is an ace stageshow too. I also really love Blood Brothers although I've not seen/heard anything from it since I was about 18 so don't know if I'd still feel the same. Phantom of the Opera and Jesus Christ Superstar are great too and I was actually genuinely surprised by how good the Billy Elliott Musical is too.
I mean obviously it's all stupidly fucking expensive (and I don't think I've ever gone except when my parents have been visiting) but I do think stage musicals have an undeserved bad reputation.
