I wouldn't say its classic yet, but I wouldn't mind floating down on a gigantic metal bubble like Kristin does in Wicked. I would probably fall though.

Great thread!

Peter's first entrance through the windows in PETER PAN.
"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."

Harvey's entrance in HAIRSPRAY was nothing. The entrance is only special because of the actor.

Wow everyone took my ideas...I need to start thinking "outside the box".

I agree with Kristin in the bubble and Rose coming down the isle, though....

In Oklahoma, Curly enters while he's singing. That's pretty awesome to sing offstage and then come onstage. It's the very first person we hear in the show, too. So I like that entrance.

Oh and I also like how in Annie Get Your Gun, Annie's first entrance is when she's shooting something from back stage...

I guess it's not really that special, but I like Vanessa Williams' entrance as The Witch. The little knock at the door and then the explosion. I thought it was cool.

Well, going against the grain: I can think of a great Broadway exit as well. It's weird, but I've always wanted to be eaten by an Audrey II puppet. Lol.

Like in the current Broadway production, Kerry Butler is grabbed, and lifted in the air and swung around. Then she dies, then she just get gobbled up by this massive plant that takes up about a fourth of the stage. Just seems like a fun way to go.
