Why a musical? Why not a movie, just as it is?
Well, because, you see, a musical is not just a boring show where you see people singing some songs, a musical is so much more than this.
Seeing someone pour their hearts out when singing can be quite extraordinary.They can transmit so many things, they can share everything that they feel with you and make you feel with them.
And to prove it, here are a few excerpts from some of my favorites. In no particular order, of course!
1. My Fair Lady
The beautiful, talented Audrey Hepburn, plays the role of a flower girl, earning her keep every day but aspiring to more than that. She meets professor Henry Higgins who will help her obtain her aim, but not as she thought she would.
3.Les Misérables, which I think needs no introduction.
4.Sweeney Todd is a dark musical of Tim Burton that depicts the infamous story of Benjamin Barker . If you don’t like gloomy, dark movies, then I recommend you don’t watch it.Johnny Depp plays beautifully, by the way. ^_^
5. Then there is the absolute classic The Phantom of the Opera which belongs to Andrew Lloyd Webber and the story revolves around a beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius.
5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory belongs to Tim Burton who is famous for film making. This is a children’s story of a poor little boy winning a tour on the famous Chocolate Factory in town alongside with other colorful personalities. It’s quite funny especially the oompa loompa song !
If you haven’t watched it already, well, shame on you! :-)
7.Hairspray is a teens musical that keeps you up on your feet (or,if you prefer, just continuously tapping your feet under the table) because its colorful, joy filled and entertaining.
[ P.S. Travolta’s still got some moves left, if you ask me! ]
9. And last, but not least, Notre – Dame de Paris which I think is the greatest musical ever! :)

Of course, the list doesn’t end here, but for now, I will conclude here!
