CARRIE - I had a blast at that terrible show.
MARILYN - Alyson Reed played Marilyn Monroe in this entertaining mess.

How can B&B be bad musical? Musical for kids doesn't mean it is bad.

A musical isnt bad if you enjoy it.

Yes it is. It's possible to enjoy bad things, just as its possibile to hate something brilliant. You've got to be kidding...

Altough I personally dont consider it a bad musical, I loved the revival of Sweet Charity.

Poor production maybe, but not a bad musical at all

Yeah I wasnt sure about including Charity but because some of the critics really despised this production I thought I might as well.

All Shook Up! By no means considered "bad", but trashed by critics.

Revival of Little Shop of Horrors
Revival of Sweet Charity

I didn't think that either of these were bad, but critics didn't seem to like them. I enjoyed them a lot, especially Sweet Charity.

I liked Dracula because it was so bad.

Wicked got mostly god-awful reviews, but I love the show.

Mamma Mia!

I even own the cast recording because the music was stuck in my head for months after seeing. At this point though I think I've gotten it out of my system.

Ring of Fire. Everybody seems to hate this show, but it really blew me away. It is just a great escape, plain and simple.

Jekyll and Hyde. I really love some of the songs from the show, even though I'm not too fond of a lot of the lyrics. But they're so darn catchy!

Golden Boy was not successful when it first opened, but I find the score better than both Bye Bye Birdie and Applause, the two big hits by songwriters Lee Adams and Charles Strouse. I haven't read the book (there is a copy at my public library), so it may not be so great as I think.

'Bad' is subjective, but in terms of what there seems to be a universal agreement (at least everybody I know whether it be real life or on the net) that is bad:

CHESS - I love this show, I think it is grossly misunderstood and underrated (granted this really is the OLC for me, I admit the OBC had alot of flaws).

CARRIE - What can I say, flops are like crack to me.

I think by "bad", people are assuming this means shows that were critically panned and/or commercial flops.

Within these parameters, I must admit to love Mamma Mia! (which satisfies the former but not the latter). The cast recording is awful though.
