I love musicals! There's something about a story set to music that always resonsates with me. Whether I'm watching a live or recorded performance, or just listening to a CD in my car, I am always in the mood for show tunes. This wasn't always the case, however. For a long time, I ignored this wonderful genre of music for several reasons, the biggest being that my friends considered them uncool. Then, in 8th grade, I happened to listen to just a few songs from The Phantom of the Opera...and I've been hooked ever since.
