CATS. There was a professional production in a tent about 11 years ago in Australia.

You remember it? What was it called, do you have any more information on it?

I remember seeing it completely blind so I'm still not sure what it was :P.

CATS; Run Away to the Circus, otherwise known as the tent tour. It opened at Ayes Rock in December 1999.

I can't remember all that much, since I was ten at the time.

Probably Phantom, but the first ALW musical I ever saw was a community theatre production of Joseph.

Discovered Phantom of the Opera in my younger days. I thought it was fantastic in those days (I'm a lot more critical now but I still like it) so got into all the other ALW shows and then progressed to Claude-Michel Schonberg, and haven't looked back since.

The movie came out in 1973. IDKHTLH was playing on the radio. I became hooked on JCS. Somwhere between 8th and 10th grade, Evita was really popular on Broadway and I overheard my band director debating whether or not to play a few songs from that musical for our upcoming concert. I was ecstatic since I already knew a few of the songs from hearing my mom play them, I practically begged him to do it (he did). That started my fascination with Evita. Then came my fascination with a non-ALW play - A Chorus Line. Phantom won me back.

Phantom but I saw Joesph first-just as a school production, so I don't really count it, because I couldn't hear what was going on and I wasn't really paying attention because I didn't like it and the performance just sucked. Singing acting and the mics, espcially. It seems that they spent too much time on costumes and sets rather than the technical work and practising.

I saw Starlight Express in Bochum when I was to young to remember! When I bought "The New Starlight Express" I knew all the melodies by heart.
