I have seen this question thrown out to the musicals, but not for plays. I am really interested in your opinions.

Of the plays I've seen

Both Oliver and Philip have some great moments in The Vertical Hour.

And Nixon in Frost/Nixon. The late night phone call...amazing.

I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

Right. I thought when broadwayboy said play, he meant show.

Sorry about the confusion.

Agree 100%! HA!
Jack: For your information, most people who meet me do not know that I am gay. Will: Jack, blind and deaf people know you're gay. Dead people know you're gay. Jack: Grace, when you first met me, did you know I was gay? Grace: My dog knew.

Do you count Shakespeare? Then you have a whole lot - Othello, Lear, Hamlet (depending on how he's played), Romeo, etc.

I agree with WaltSummers- very emotional scene.
I hold a degree in Musical Theatre from Montclair State University. It is useless. Now I'm funny for money. Oh, and I sing.
