  1. No, no, no… Surely it’s HSM2 that should’ve been on the list

    Any bets on how many variations Disney’s going to do? “High School Musical – 10-Year Reunion”; “High School Musical – Songs for the Old Folks’ Home”

    Hope all’s well, Amanda.
    (Did any of you actually click on that link?)

  2. Dudes, I haven’t seen either of the HSMs. I personally am waiting for “High School Musical–Burned-Out Child Star Talk Show Edition.”

    Sara, I clicked on the link. πŸ™‚

  3. SWEET! Love this T13.

    I don’t know if I can fit all of my faves into 13, but we shall see.

    1. W;t (ohhh, me too. Punctuation is of the utmost importance, is it not?)

    2. Wicked (nope, not pretentious.)

    3. The Importance of Being Earnest

    4. Godspell

    5. You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown (simple wisdom at its finest.)

    6. Oklahoma!

    7. Singin’ in the Rain

    8. The Pirates of Penzance (…yes. It is somewhat amazing.)

    9. Fiddler on the Roof

    10. Death of a Salesman

    11. The Light in the Piazza (brilliant.)

    12. Hedda Gabler

    13. The Glass Menagerie

    Nope, no “Good Vibrations” or “Pirate Queen” here. πŸ™‚ I did like “Caucasian Chalk Circle,” though. Ohh — 13.5 – “The Zoo Story,” by Albee. Inappropriate but brilliant.

  4. Oh boy. Just thirteen? Okay. thirteen “official” and some extras.

    1) Hamlet (it’s a gimme, but c’mon)
    2) Death of a Salesman
    3) All My Sons
    4) Cyrano De Bergerac
    5) Much Ado about Nothing
    6) Six Characters in Search of an Author
    7) Suburbia

    Also: Molly Sweeney, True West, Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me, Christmas Carol

    8) Sunday in the Park with George
    9) Godspell
    10) Moulin Rouge
    11) Singin in the Rain
    12) Sweeney Todd
    13) 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

    Also: Urinetown, Into the Woods, The Producers, Les Mis, and anything else with Mandy Patinkin

  5. 1. Pillowman (imagine a play about a children’s book writer…and Chuck Palhaniuk wrote the script. It’s really dark yet funny at the same time. I highly recommend it!)

    2. A Christmas’ Carol (more because of the memories of going every year than the play itself)

    3. Hamlet (or the Lion King since it’s the same story)

    4. Death of a Salesman

    5 – 13. Variously plays that I saw a few years ago…I really enjoyed them, but their titles escape me…
