    I love plays. I used to be in them, as well. I love a good musical, too, but I don't necessarily like listening to showtunes for their own sake anymore. I also enjoy movie musicals. Live theatre is exciting and more immediate, and you really get to appreciate the level of talent that some people are blessed with.

    My main problem with theatre is that it's too expensive. It becomes an elitist thing, where it should be accessible to all.

    As a footnote, my friend's obssession with Wicked is enough to turn me off musicals forever. :-P

    I love both! Of course I've also done a fair amount of acting myself. There might be some kind of correlation there.

    Yes, I like both, too. The intimacy of theatre and the production and performances in musicals.

    Hate 'em.

    Intellectually, they have my utmost respect. Experientially, I get caught in the trap of knowing that I made the effort to show up and fork out cash to watch them entertain me, and it makes me not feel entertained.

    Oh it definatly depends.

    Some plays/musicals I really enjoyed. Most I didn't like.

    All the musicals I enjoyed have been rather sexy or suggestive musicals.

    Cats was great too.

    No I'm not a furry.

    ...Or am I?

    My rule with musicals is that if it has a "dream ballet," I probably won't like it. All those 50s Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals were always a bit cheesy for my tastes.

    Just don't start off with Wagner. These are great 'first operas'. Enjoy.

    I love both. I just went to Fiddler On the Roof two nights ago. And I just saw The Importance of Being Earnest just a while ago. Both were great. I like having a chance to see several productions of the same thing to see how differently they cast it and make the set. It never gets old. Rogers and Hammerstein isn't my favourite, but I don't hate it either.

    If by cheesy you mean awesome in an innocent 50s way then I totally agree!

    Ahhh!

    i enjoy plays, but i have not seen a whole lot of them. i don't really enjoy most musicals.

    i tend to like more modern plays. i am not a big fan of shakespeare.
    and i really dislike plays that are performed without any props or sets, i think they are called black box plays. when i see a play, i want it to have elaborate sets overflowing with details, too many details, like visual overload.
    set design is very interesting to me, maybe more interesting than the actual play.
