Phantom is shit.

 

Love Les Mess

 

Springtime for Hitler (the Producers) was brilliant, especially the film with Zero Mostel.

 

The Mikado (though classed as a 'light opera') needs to be in contention also.

 

RENT, while not being a terrific musical in and of itself, needs to be considered due tot he fact that it completely reinvented and reenergized the genre.

they're mostly trite stuttering shoe-hor-a-song-in-here-tastic piles of crap

 

haven't yet seen a musical that I liked, mind you I've only sat through Grease and Guys and Dolls (had to because our school was performing them... I was Horse in Guys and Dolls and one of the T-Birds in Grease)

 

haven't seen much else, although someone will probably say "You've surely watched X..."

 

oh wait I've watched the old version of the Producers.. does that count?

A good musical shouldn't be that way at all; the songs should seem absolutely natural. If it doesn't it's either a crap musical or a crap performance. Or both. If your school put them on it was probably both.
