I was 17 when I saw my first show. I had recently moved to Toronto and I had never seen a musical before. I went to Mamma Mia on a school trip and I thought it was life changing because after that I was hooked.

MisterRussell - that is creepy! I was 16, and Sweeney with Lansbury and Cariou was my 1st, and Evita with Patti and Bob was second!

I was 5 and saw Once on this Island. It was either the same year or the next that I saw Miss Saigon, The Secret Garden, Fiddler, and Aspects of Love.

I was 18 and the show was Man of La Mancha, with Stokes.

He definitely stirred some feelings up in me.

I mean the show did.

My first broadway show was big the musical at age six. I was sitting still and in love with every second of the show. I was hooked that night desptie the fact that i was sitting in the last row balcony of the shubert theatre.

11-Rent, while on vacation with my mom in New York city for the first time. I didn't quite understand the themes of the show then, but I freaking loved it anyways and forced my mom to buy me the CD after the show and listened to that day and night. *sighs* good times.

Gosh, I have no idea what DAY but I was probably it was but I remember being in the front row of the mezzanine watching A Chorus Line on Broadway. It was 1981... I remember saying to my dad.. quite clearly...When VAL finished her Dance ten:Looks Three number --- "Daddy, I thought you said this was a G Rated Musical" -- it was REALLY loud as only a 7 year old would say when the applause went down.... the whole place heard me.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

I'm pretty sure I was 12, and it was Les Mis.

Hopefully it was as good for them as it was for me

I was 11. It was October of '03 and I sat 4th row in the revival of "42nd Street". Since then I've seen "Fame", "Fiddler" with Rosie (met her), "Fame Becomes Me", "Grey Gardens" (met Christine), and "Mary Poppins".
You look absolutely terrific, honestly.

I forgot about west end. The first show I ever saw there was Claudette Colbert and Rex Harrison in Aren't We All. And I have no idea how old I was except I was so thrilled to see it since I loved the My Fair Lady record. And also loved It Happened One night.

I think my brother wins, though. He was six when we saw Tyne in Gypsy from the front row of the orchestra. You could have peeled him off the wall after "Gimmick"
