A little tidbit about Musicals Music...
What is a musical? As the name implies, musicals are musical compositions that may or may not include lyrics or vocal accompaniment. Musicals are often presented through orchestra, opera and other theatrics. More oft than not, musicals are usually plays (especially Broadway) or movies that contain musical scores and singing parts.
Recent musicals include "The Producers", released in 2005 and "Chicago" made its screen debut in 2002; but other more popular musicals have made their mark in musical history. For great family entertainment, here are a few musicals that you may recall from the past: Grease; Oklahoma; Cats; You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown; Cinderella; Footloose; and Beauty and the Beast.
Other musicals such as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and "The Little Shop of Horrors" may not have received great reviews; but were nonetheless entertaining. Whether fan or critic of musicals, these drama productions continue to be embraced by modern culture - both on the big screen and on soundtrack. "Hairspray," a favorite musical, is a musical Broadway play that sets the stage of a 1960's style dance show. Additionally, now-playing shows include "All Shook Up," "Rent," and "Movin' Out," to name a few.
