"Bad " Musical You Enjoyed#0

I remember seeing Rockabye Hamlet & totally enjoyed it

It was a different take on Shakespeare. The critics, as we know, made it their own tradegy & killed it. I have a 10 track LP of songs from the show plus

Anyone else have their opinion of this or any other musical trashed by the critics where you disagreed with them ?

I'm looking forward to seeing Brooklyn. I have the Cast Recording and I hope it comes near me on tour.

I also like Wicked and Mamma Mia if that counts.

Ugh I hate BROOKLYN with a fiery passion.

I enjoyed TABOO and BOMBAY DREAMS - but I wouldn't really consider them "bad."

Hey TheaterAddict7652, that's your opnion.

I expected it to be a musical (with dialogue), but ends up being a dancical!! Other people hated it because it's just, well, dancing. But I love the music in it though.

The Billy Joel songs in it are classics--I loved the music even before it was IN the show :)

Choosing from shows that were flops but may not necessarily be bad I like Chess, Sweet Smell of Success, Subways are for Sleeping (the music, wasn't born yet so couldn't see it live), and I enjoy the music from Rags.

Definitely any Wildhorn show which because anything he writes is automatically a bad show (before it opens) according to the esteemed critics

Seussical and Jekyll and Hyde are both guilty pleasures of mine. I can't help it!

I can listen to PIMPERNEL every once in a while, but JH just annoys me, and the rest are downhill from there.
