I've never dug musicals.
South Park, Bigger Longer Uncut is about the only one I like!
And maybe Paint Your Wagon.
I've got the DVD of South Pacific somewhere - bizarre movie. And A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum - overrated.

Rock-opera is always turgid rubbish.
Lloyd Webber can go to hell.
But sometimes it's worth tolerating - Phantom of the Paradise is an excellent movie. As are the Rocky Horror Picture Show and the Little Shop of Horrors.
I'm sure West Side Story is genius, but I've never seen it all the way through.
I used to play oboe in local am-dram Gilbert and Sullivans regularly as a teenager. That was always fun.
