Being a musical lover most of my life, I have seen countless musicals both on stage and on screen. I am most disappointed when I love the stage show and hate the movie.
Musical I Can't Stand: Grease - hate the music, the storyline, and the actors. Dislike the stage version even more.
Loved the Stage Show, Hated the Movie: Man of La Mancha (Sophia Loren is a horrible Aldonza);
The Wiz (fabulous on stage, dismal as a movie. This is what happens when you place star names above creativity);
Musical Numbers I Can't Stand: Anything Russell Crowe sang in Les Miz
