A thread right up my alley! I'm a total musical theater geek and grew up hearing Rogers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Lowe and all of the other classics like "Showboat," "Oliver!" and "Kismet." Love the early Lloyd-Weber stuff too.
I can't post anything on here right now, but my absolute favorite is "Man of La Mancha." I even had a cat I named Dulcinea. (The lyrics to that song are so beautiful.)
Love this thread!
