    None on Broadway, but touring and/or broadway plays at the local dinner theater:
    Beauty and the Beast - twice (and will keep seeing it every time they put it on)
    Camelot
    White Christmas
    Riverdance (not technically a play, but it is a touring production and it's amazing!!)

    Want to see when it comes local:
    -Mary Poppins
    -Little Mermaid
    -Legally Blonde
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

                I'm pretty jealous you saw Edward Scissorhands.

                Si vous voulez venir danser aussi, le ticket d’entrée n’est jamais gratuit.

                  I'm not sure if you guys would count Cirque Du Soleil or not.*

                  Brigadoon
                  Mystere*
                  Le Reve
                  Lion King
                  Phantom of the Opera
                  Blue man Group

                  We don't have much for regular 'plays' here in Vegas, but the shows are definitely a treat!

                    Not on Broadway but...

                    Grease (loved it)
                    Phantom of the Opera (very disappointing)

                    I saw Wicked and Mary Poppins are coming to the Tampa Bay PAC next year. Hoping to go to one or both.

                        I've been doing stuff in community theatre several years, so I've seen a lot of plays because my friends and I generally try and go see each other's shows. But some of the bigger touring productions I've seen are…

                        Spamalot (Ahmanson)
                        Avenue Q (Ahmanson)
                        Edward Scissorhands (Ahmanson)
                        Miss Saigon (OC)
                        Jersey Boys (Ahmanson)
                        Pirates of Penzance (years ago in Washington DC and James Belushi played the Pirate King!)
                        How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (La Jolla Playhouse)
                        The Phantom of the Opera (Pantages)
                        Sweeney Todd (the recent Ahmansen tour)
                        The Lion King (Pantages)
                        Beauty and the Beast (2x at the Shubert)

                          I'm pretty jealous you saw Edward Scissorhands.
                          Edward Scissorhands was weird in the fact that they had no dialogue or singing, just dancing. It was entertaining nonetheless and the sets were spectacular; it looked like Tim Burton designed the sets himself.

                          It's funny that you mention the broadway plays put on by high schools because my high school did Little Shop of Horrors and FAME. I was Doris Schwartz in FAME

                            One of the advantages of living in London is that I have access to probably the greatest theatre in the world (although Broadway still tops us for musicals). A great recent bonus is the number of big name stars who have come to London and stared in west end shows; – we even have Kevin Spacey as the artistic director of the Old Vic theatre. We also have some very historic theatres (the Theatre Royal is the oldest continually used theatre in the world) and some unique venues such as Shakespeare’s Globe (built by the American actor Sam Wannamaker), the National Theatre (built by Lawrence Olivier) and the open air theatre which is just magical.

                            A new thing in London is also theatre tours – I can really recommend the tour at the National which goes behind the scenes and shows how everything works (in New York they do great ones at the Lincoln Centre and Madison Square Garden).

                            Anyway amongst other things I’ve seen over the past couple of years:

                            Musicals: Hello Dolly, La Carge Aux Folles, Hairspray, Evita, Porgy and Bess, The Producers (my all time favourite show), Anything Goes, A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, The Sound of Music, The Woman in White, Spamalot, Mary Poppins, Fiddler on the Roof, Modern Millie, Guys and Dolls, 42nd Street and Phantom.

                            Plays: Hat Fever, Blythe Spirit, Oedipus, Phedre, The Power of Yes, Inherit the Wind, Hamlet, All’s Well That Ends Well, Taming of the Shrew, Royal Hunt of the Sun, Major Barbara, Much Ado About Nothing, Orange County, The Importance of Being Ernest, Macbeth, The Woman in Black, Never So Good, Once in a Lifetime, Twelfth Night & Ivanov
