Movies about musicals

  • All That Jazz (AWESOME)

G&S

dunno what exactly

High Priorities (according to Jason)

  • Jesus Christ Superstar (musical)
  • Josie and the Pussycats (rock musical)
  • Downward Dog (short series)
  • Galaxy Quest (especially for one line)
  • Tripod - How To Train An Attack Dog From Scratch (a history of musical comedy)
  • Tripod tells the tale of The Adventures of Tosswinkle the Pirate (not very well) (the DVD)
  • stuff by Baby Wants Candy

Musicals to watch for the dancing rather than for the music

  • A Chorus Line
  • Singin' In The Rain (also great plot and acting)
  • An American In Paris (but under protest because I hate the plot, but I love Gene Kelly's shoulders SO MUCH)
  • almost everything with Fred Astaire

A musical but not a musical

  • Allegro Non Troppo

Maybe

  • Dirty Dancing
  • The Wrong Mans (series, for James Corden)
  • Shakespeare In Love

Watched (for our biographers to note)

  • Tripod Versus The Dragon
  • Into The Woods
  • The Last Five Years
  • Topsy-Turvy
