  1. So many classics! I will say, I probably know more about older musicals like these than more modern ones. Out of all of these, either White Christmas or Les Mis would be my favorite. I remember every Christmas we would watch the original White Christmas movie, and how can you not love Les Mis?


    • White Christmas is a movie I try to watch over the Holidays. When it comes to The Golden Age of musicals, my favorite musical is Sound of Music

      You are right- it is hard not to love Les Mis. However, back in high school, I literally thought I would never love a tragedy. But Les Mis decided to prove me wrong

  2. Good choices. I quote from “South Pacific” often. Oscar Hammerstein wrote the powerful song about bigotry “You have to be carefully taught, by the time you are seven or eight. You have to be carefully taught to hate the people your parents hate.” Keith
