THat certainly does sem an odd choice for such a famously light-hearted commodity like Mary Poppins. I'm not sure why they are so adament about keeping it in when it's making pretty mcuh everyone uncomfortable.

This show's cast recording has a special place in my heart becuase I received it for Christmas last year, the same day that I found out that my father and stepmother were getting divorced. Listening to it really helped me get through that and move on, and heal. It's an amazing score, the only musical theater my mother will actually listen to, and one of my very favorite shows.
The Next Ten Minutes is going to be my wedding song.

I saw her in a tour of The Sound Of Music as Maria. She was actually very very good. I've always liked her and I really enjoyed her performance and loved her voice.

Oh, but I woke up this morning with "A Way Back To Then" (particularly the end, which always makes me cry) from Title Of Show stuck in my head. Ugh...that song always makes me so emotional and it just kept playing over and over again.

I hate it when womenn tease their hair to be relaly big before they go to the theater. My mother and I went to see The Wedding Singer, it was teh only show we were going to get to see on that trip. And the woman sitting in front of my mother's hair was massive. It was teased up into a huge poof. And my poor mother couldn't see anything. she had to lean to the side for the whole two and a half hours of the performance. She had such bad neck problems for days after that.

Yeah, my frieind auditioned for our school musical last year and said she heard quite a few songs from Millie, and I've heard of a couple people who did songs from Rent (Seasons Of Love and One Song Glory) and from Grease as well. Also, quite a few things for Hair.

My boyfriend and I do that all the time. I introduced him to RENT last year and now we have our weird little Rent things that we do. When we're on the phone and one of asks "What's the time?" the other one always sings "Well it's gotta be close to midnight..." And then we'll just start singing.
It's weird to hear your boyfriend sing "I wanna put on a tight skirt and flirt with a stranger" though.

THere are a few songs from L5Y that might work, my mother hates showtunes and she actually got through the whole of that cast recording and actually liked a few of the songs (namely "Goodbye Until Tomorrow" and "The Next Ten Minutes") so maybe try some of those.

The only two recordings I can honestly say that I never skip songs from are Sweeney and L5Y. As much as I love Wedding Singer, I do skip songs sometimes.
Well, actuallly, tha't snot true anymore. I used to skip songs. Ever since I actually saw it onstage I don't anymore. But that's not merely based on the recording, so it doesn't count.
Even the RENT OBCR I skip most of the voicemails, in SWIWS I skip most of the second act, and I never cared for "Real Life" from TTB. Li
I loathe Hilary Duff with a passion only reserved for talentless makeup-caked drama queen Disney stars. She is possibly one of the least talented people in Hollywood and honestly, I would never see a show she was in. I love The Wedding Singer and not only is she too young to play anyone in that show, she would ruin it. She does not have the talent to do it. Maybe wiht the help of lots and lots of computer work her voice can s

-you and a friend are standing outside on a chilly evening and she says "You're shivering." And without missing a beat, you sing, "It's nothing, they turned off my heat, and I'm just a little weak on my feet. Would you light my candle?"
And then she joins you.
And she picks up Roger's part and you sing Mimi and you go through the whole rest of the song at the top of your lungs together on the street corner.
Ahhh, good times.

I feel really guilty now for not seeing Sweeney when I was in NYC this weekend. But like you guys said, I was already having a bad weekend and I didn't want something depressing. So I saw Wedding Singer. Sweeney was my second choice, though. And my mother told me that if I find out Sweeney's going to close she'll take me up to NYC to see it before that happens. I just hope it can hang in there! Such a shame...

I don't get to see a lot of shows, as I don't live in New York. So I'm going to be honest and say that I haven't seen either of the two shows I'll mention, I've just heard the music. PotO and Spamalot. Spamalot was charming the first, like, three listens through and then it just got to be obnoxious. I just can't stand listening to Phantom at all. It's so annoying.
And Wicked, while not being the worst show on Broadway, is probably up there with the most obnoxious. That I HAVE seen
