With total inspiration from one of my favorite blogs, Insight Into Entertainment, I had to listen to "The Sound of Music." Had to. Nothing in the world could stop me and I had to share it. Had to!
I love musicals. This will come as a shock for folks who know me in real life and with whom I attend the theater. I very rarely want to get tickets to a musical and if I do, they are rarely less than forty years old. But give me Rodgers and Hammerstein and Cole Porter and I am in love. And if you add the classics of the movies, this may be all the music I may need for quite awhile. I can watch "Gigi" or "Meet Me in St. Louis" almost endlessly and cry every time I see them.
This is my love letter to my favorite musicals and let me include in this post a love note to Julie Andrews and every thanks for the infinite hours of happiness I've had watching and listening to her, both in "The Sound of Music" and the Broadway version of "Camelot."
Please let me know your favorite musicals. Can't imagine that visitors to Buttercupland don't like musicals!
