I don't know about you but I LOVE a good musical! The singing and the dancing always make me feel so happy and lighthearted. Of course, there are a few that are my favorites, and I thought I would share my top five with you today. I would love to hear what your favorite musicals are! Just tell me your picks down in the comments section. These are in no particular order. It was hard enough trying to narrow it down to just five!
I have probably seen this movie a hundred times if not more. Danny and Sandy are great but Rizzo steals the show as far as I'm concerned!
My Fair Lady
This may have been the first musical I ever saw. To this day, it still delights me as does anything Audrey Hepburn starred in.
Okay, I'll confess. I wept like a baby three times seeing this in the theater. I am known to belt out a killer rendition of Master of the House while driving!
Singing in the Rain
A true classic with one of the best singer/dancers ever to grace the silver screen, Mr. Gene Kelly.
The Sound of Music
Is there anyone out there who doesn`t know at least one song from this amazing musical?
While I just adore the following two movies, I can't really call them true musicals as there is no singing. Since I use that as a criteria, they had to be omitted from the top 5 list. But, they are not to be forgotten!
Another film that I have watched over and over and over. The romance between Baby and Johnny is a true classic and the dancing is sheer perfection.
What a premise for a great movie. A town that doesn`t allow dancing and the adorable kid who brings the joy of song and dance back.
