My favorites (and and off broadway some way way way off):

1. Maureen Johnson, Idina Menzel Rent
2. Freddy Benson, Norbert Leo Butz, DRS
3. Robbie Hart, Stephen Lynch, The Wedding Singer
5. Jamie Wellenstein, Norbert Leo Butz, The Last 5 Years
6. Kathy, Sherie Rene Scott, The Last 5 Years
7. Elphaba, Idina Menzel, Wicked
8. Rona, Lisa Howard, 25th Annual Spelling Bee

This might change after I see I love you your perfect, title of show, and the wedding singer again (3 times) this coming weekend. lol
I made a list of all your faults, it was quite detailed and lengthy too and when I read it through I missed you. Your like a classic Eagles song, you just cant help but sing along even though it sometimes gets annoying too. I just know I want to be wherever I can wake and see you there next to me. **High Fidelity** Love is what I do **The Wedding Singer** Xanadu - Best NEW Musical of the Season!
