After composer comes score!!! What's your favorite?
Posted by MlleDaae 2003-05-24 13:30:07
My favorite score is "Tanz der Vampire". The music is beautiful including 'Totale Finsternis'(Total Eclipse of the Heart).

"Nine"... there's such a range of music. There's big, fun, showy numbers (Vatican/Be Italian) and heart wrenching numbers (Simple)... as well as emotionally driven numbers that give you chills if done correctly (Unusual Way/Be On Your Own)... and then everything in between!
I LOVE "NINE!"

My two favorite scores are The Phantom of the Opera, it is flawless and perfect, and Dance/Tanz Der Vampire, probably one on the most amazing scores ever written, and both are just amazing shows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweeny Todd and Assassins!

It stands to reason that my favorite composer, Jerry Herman, would produce my favorite score from, Hello, Dolly!
A note of interest, In 1999, Jerry Herman was asked to assist with the music and score for The Producers the Musical but turned down the Mel Brooks request saying Mel already had accomplished much of it himself when he successfully produced "Springtime for Hitler" and "Prisoners of Love" for The Producers the movie from the 1960's.

Les Miserables is good and Miss Saigon is impressive, however the undertone is just too much all the time. I'm not really sure I'm good enough a judge of music.

A Chorus Line
Bells Are Ringing

I would have to say Phantom it made my hair stand up on my arms. and second Dance of the Vampires it was just as haunting. Ciao Bella.....

I'd say Rent and Hairspray. There's something about those shows that never makes me get tired of them.

I have always loved the score to "Gypsy."
I also love "Les Miz" and "Mack and Mabel"
Such great music in both of those shows.
