    I'm not sure Saturday Night Fever is really a musical BUT it is a film based around music so I understand why you chose it.

    I like the old musicals like South Pacific, Carousel etc. BUT I think Moulin Rouge is fantastic. I also like Little Shop of Horrors. I actually like loads of musicals.

    The best scene from any musical is after the final credits have rolled

    Oh come on TIm

    Everyone loves "The Sound Of Music" & " My Fair Lady"

    Well must admit I like "My Fair Lady" because Audrey Hepburn is in it ........she is one classy lady !!!!

    Today's Hollywood stars just don't compare to the stars from that era.

    For good reason in my opinion. Musicals are neither one thing nor another. I don't mind if the whole thing is told in song and dance (like a opera, or Cats which I rather surprised myself by enjoying - although that may have something to do with svelte young ladies cavorting in Lycra). In that instance song and dance is the medium, but when people switch between acting and singing it leaves me cold.

    I've never really considered why before, but now i think about it I wonder whether its something to do losing my involvement in the story as the switch between acting and song acts as a stark reminder i'm watching something, rather than involved in it - I lose that sense of engagement. Either the songs interrupt the story or the story interrupts the song. I might as well watch telly and be interrupted by adverts.

    I too saw Ghost on the stage (wife's birthday treat) and liked the staging - not so much the effects but the use of the dance chorus and lighting creating almost L.S.Lowrey like tableux. But then they'd spoil it by acting out a sentimental plot which wouldn't be so bad if they didn't burst into song (oh sorry, I'm off again).
