No not like MTV, am talking about musicals like CATS, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, PORGY and BESS, that sort of thing.

Wow, you are of them super-cultured ladies I see! Those are lovely plays, but it is not going to be easy for us to do that on TV. We don't even have things like that in the theatre, whatever is left of it.

Hmmm,did we have anything like musicals in our theatres?I wonder.What we had were plays or just cultural dances,but musical plays are a new territory to me.

I dont think they ever had any, I mean the yoruba movies have like a song or two....I saw AFONJA, and I loved the entertainment scene, all the girls dancing to the bata drumz, just drives me wild.

I guess am old fashioned, but I just love songs that form stories, I can just see it, all those young ladies, with their annoying tiny voices dancing, and the men doing interesting things with their bodies....ai aye aye!!!!!!



BY THE WAY, I'M LOOKING FOR TICKETS TO NIGERIA:D

You could consider " pot of life" a musical. We have alot of plays that have been shown on stage as musicals. None that has got as much press as Miss Saigon or Phantom of the Opera but they can still be considered musicals.

Oh my God, I think I remember pot of life, we did a rendition of it back in primary school. Something about a calabash not being broken till it gets to the forest safely to save a village... RIght?

Did anyone see O LE KU, there was a scene there when the guy took his girlfriend to go see a play, it seemed like all they did was sing and dance, I wonder what production that was.



One thing I know is that if a musical could be written and taken on stage and the soundtrack made available in stores, soon it'll get recognized. I mean look at KAT AND THE KINGS, they were sold out in Toronto. And les miserables is just one useless thing, twas the work of good publicity and ON MY OWN that made it big.

And Ms Saigon, well, asians support anything asian, lets go figure
