Re: Harry Potter the Musical? Watch it or Not?

It depends if it's done tastefully.
Who'd have thought someone could make a successful musical from a story of a serial killer and a pie maker? Sweeney Todd got brilliant reviews, and this shows in it's ticket sales.
It obviously wouldn't have any dramatic songs - the songs could come give comedic value. Vernon and Petunia could have a song, ordering Harry around. If written and composed well, this would be great to watch (in words it doesn't sound good - but just think about it).

The point is, don't be so close-minded. My original reaction was "OMGZ *** NOOOO?!?!?!?!****eoneelevenonehunder11!!1WW22"?" as well, but on reflection it's not a bad idea. It doesn't have to be one that relies on the songs to tell the story - just to help make it a good performance.

Besides, we could have Hoggywarty Hogwarts, the Sorting hat's song, and an extended version of the Golblin's singing their warning. It really could work. There are obviously certain characters that shouldn't sing at all - Snape, Quirrel, Mc Gonnogal etc. But if used tastefully, I think it could be great
