      I love the old Broadway musicals. They don't make them like that anymore. I still hum the songs to "Fiddler on The Roof."

      @rob-hemphill: How amazing to get to see it in London.

      I have only see one on Broadway, but have seen musicals in London, Toronto and Montreal. It is hard to pick a favourite. To be honest, some of them have places where they are too indulgent - but in general they are fun. A lot of work to produce I'm sure.

      Phantom of the Opera. Saw it in New York and in San Francisco. It was amazing both places but especially in NYC because the stage was so large. The music is incredible!

      I love the big musicals, although haven't seen on actually on Broadway itself. I saw a magnificent touring production of Man of La Mancha.
