So, we must work as a team:

1. Franklin Shephard (Merrily We Roll Along)? (not sure)
5. Harold Nichols from THE FULL MONTY! (I know that one)

Cool quiz, L5Y.

4) Peter Pan!
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

Dear Jake...I bought a copy of LAST 5 YEARS to expand my horizons and to acknowledge some of the comments posted on this board. I wanted to be genuinely pleased and surprised.

I've only heard it once but even that had to be in two parts. I fell asleep during the first 8 songs. Dreary, dull, depressing. YIKES!

Sure, call me DREARY, DULL and DEPRESSING, but com'on folks. Who is encouraging this type of "musical theatre" writing?
Where has the magic and the positiveness gone in musicals?

Sorry, but your quiz makes only a little sense to me...your "pic" set me off on this tangent.

"Magic and positiveness" are in every big budget, flashy, brightly colored musical comedy we've seen in the past five years. I hardly think there's any shortage of bouncy, happy, life is just a bowl of cherries theatre. The thing I love about The Last Five Years is that it's true. I know, musical theatre is predicated on the fact that there's a heavy amount of willing suspension of disbelief, but the brutal honesty with which the demise of Cathy and Jamie's relationship gets presented gets me every time. There's no clear victim, there's no clear villian, it's tragic in the most deeply felt sense of the word. Not necessarily to everyone's taste, and I wouldn't expect it to be, but I hardly think now is the time to be bemoaning the loss of positive musical comedy.
