Ever since I was a young gaybee I fell in love with musical theater. I thought I'd write a diary posting some of the favorite plays out there, and then some of the songs from them.

I know in one diary it would be impossible to do the topic justice, so I put several of my favorites along with several songs hoping that you could add to the list with some of your favorites.

I've never had the talent to perform in a play, I was always on the debate team, wanting to join in theater.

Please post your favorites below, and let us know if you were involved in the theater then or now?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
