Phantom of the Opera was my only one, but I'm sure it was by far the best on Broadway. I'm so glad I got to experience it in person after years of being a fan of the movies and traveling broadway shows- I even got a little tears towards the end.

Saw "West Side Story" in 09. Amazing! I am lucky to live in Cleveland which has the largest theater district in the nation outside of NYC. We go to shows all the time here!

Would that I could go often. Both times I've been I was swept away. So were my son & husband who didn't expect to like it.

No - Broadway is a long way from California. I've seen quite a few of the traveling shows though. I WILL get to Broadway one day though

I saw Phantom of the Opera back in June on Broadway. :) It was one of the best experiences of my life. :) If you can afford to go, I'd say it's worth doing at least once.

Me too! I don't even like plays but I admit I got chills from some of the notes those performers hit. (Especially at the very end) It really made me appreciate what they do. Very talented people.

I saw the first national tour, but I want to see it on Broadway this winter because my favorite actor/singer/PERSON in the entire world is currently Elder Price.

Yes, I saw How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (starring Daniel Radcliffe) and Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark. It was on my bucket list. I love theatre so much!

Spider-Man was a disappointment to me. The flying around was great, but the book and music were underwhelming. To me, anyway.

I go to New York every year and see at least 2 Broadway shows, usually 3 or 4. Ah, the joys of being a musical theatre geek!

Okay, list time:
Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Mary Poppins, Chicago, Matilda, The Big Knife (play), Harvey (play), Peter and the Starcatchers (play), Spamalot, Billy Elliot, and probably a bunch of others I'm forgetting right now.

It is fun to do every so often. It amazes me how interesting a relatively static setting can be with good actors and creative design.

I saw Titanic on Broadway a long time ago and thought it was underrated. Really liked it.
