Just trying to figure out how many times people on here have seen their favorite shows.

Here's mine:

RENT- 88 times
Xanadu- 24 times (and counting)
Little Shop- 12 times
Sweeney Todd- 9 times (and I didn't even really like it)

Ah, the joy of an addictive personality...

Is "TCP" before or after Fantasia?

nope, just a sad, pathetic thing. I actually work at a theatre company in the city, but in the corporate offices, not at the actual theatre.

Rent twice and Spelling Bee twice.

Broadway is a long way away. XP

Over here in the UK though, I've seen Blood Brothers countless times, Wicked five times (well, four times, and once on Broadway), Joseph at least three times, and Mary Poppins three times (and I'd've been happy to see it only once if only Gavin Creel weren't so awesome). Everything else is once or twice. ^_^

Aww, I hope Gavin Creel eventually replaces Gavin Lee on Broadway. I want to see his Bert.

For those of you who have seen shows in the RIDICULOUSLY high numbers, do you see every show that hits Broadway or just see the same one over and over? The most I have seen a show is 5x (Wicked) and that is only because it has been in Chicago so long and I have done the lottery three of the times. After that, I decided I really don't want to see shows more than once (not saying never) because I would rather just see a big variety than what I have already seen.

But damn, some of you have seen shows more times than I have even watched one movie. . .
