I voted for South Pacific, but after this summer it might be Cinderella as that is what my community theatre group is doing.

I voted Sound of Music. It's a cute show! No real reason, I'm not much of an R&H person, but SoM is really fun.

Carousel- a brilliant love story with a unique fusion of fantasy, kitchen sink drama and some of the most gorgeous music ever writtten.

Sound of Music is the WORST R&H shgow. weakest score..sappiest storyline.

South Pacific is the strongest with Carousel and KIng and I coming in as a tie for 2nd.

S.P. is just so real..the score is stellar throughout (except Wash that Man) the relationship are complex and detailed,the dialouge is natural and the plot is timeless.

While it is over the top at times, I gotta say that I think Oklahoma is the most fun.

R&H shows were my first exposure to musicals, so it's hard to pick. :P

The Best: South Pacific (with the exception of a few songs, can you find anything wrong with it?)
My Favorite: Sound of Music (closely followed by South Pacific)
