  • 1.  Bucket List

    Posted 10-02-2021 08:48
    I am in DROP (Our states retirement incentive program) and only have five years more until retirement. I have a bucket list of musicals I want to do before I go and some I have done too many times and don't want to do again. I was curious if anyone else has a similar list. These titles are favorites, but many are pipe dreams as I know I don't have enough guys to make it work or it won't be released before I retire. Here are my top five in both categories. Share yours if you want or comment on mine.

    Bucket List of Want to Direct Titles
    1. West Side Story 
    2. Wicked 
    3. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
    4. Aladdin (The full Broadway stage version)
    5. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    Bucket List of Never Want to Do Again
    1. Grease
    2. Bye Bye Birdie
    3. Little Shop of Horrors 
    4. Addams Family the Musical
    5. Seussical the Musical

    I chose "Curtains" as my final show before retiring. Seemed fitting .
    (Also, its Broadway director graduated from our HS, and came to see it. That was fun!)

    My all time favorite musical to direct is PIRATES OF PENZANCE! So much fun (if you have a great female vocalist)! I have done it twice over the last 30 years and would love to still do it again if I could. It really is fun.. AND pretty much free as far as royalties etc are concerned. :) I am referring to the full version, not the Broadway JR. version. I have not done that one so I don't know much about it. Break a Leg!
