Shows that left you in a mess of tears, unable to breathe nor stand up, and sobbing like a bitch?

Any experiences like that? Play or musical?
"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."

The ending of Grey Gardens killed me. The emotions were so high, I cant imagine anyone not being a bit of a mess.

Sweeney Todd- Unable to breathe that is. But then my legs picked me up, as I needed to rush to the stage door. The Pillowman had a similar effect.

Um, L5Y left me visibly sobbing.

For me, that's saying a lot.

Passion. I could barely get to my feet and exit the theater.

A couple...

Phantom, I saw Crawford and I couldn't control myself. I always feel so bad for the Phantom.

Aida, Heather's last night. I was bawling to say the least.

Last was, the Last Five Years. Oh man I love that show.

Just listening to Parade full through is an emotional ride that moves me a lot. The only moment where I was tearing in the theater was the significantly sad parts of act 2 of Little Women and other than that, no really upsetting moments.

How could I forget Les Mis?! I've never seen it live (yet re: Shows that left you in a mess of tears, unable to breathe nor stand up, ) but man, listening to the OBCR and watching the concert, I'm ALWAYS in tears.

I had tears streaming down my face for the entire second act of The Light In The Piazza. I'm not usually one to emote that much in public, but I couldn't control myself. I was a blubbering mess.

The Normal Heart, though I didn't lose it to my emotions until after a delay of 24 hours or so.
A work of art is an invitation to love.

I cried at Ragtime. I was emotionally shaken after The Pillowman, Awake and Sing!, Into the Woods, and Les Miz.

The day LA CAGE Closed.
TEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also cried when Millie closed at the Marquis.
The Marquis has produced a lot of tears.
Millie was the worst.

(When Stephanie left Avenue Q, I cried.)

The Light in the Piazza just struck me and couldn't stop, however, it made a nice coversation with Victoria about how she really cries every show.
