An insult
24 October 2004 | by spyk_See all my reviews

I watched this when it aired on Channel 4 shortly after Christmas. I was disgusted. As a huge fan of musical theatre I was appalled when my favorite musical of all time 'Miss Saigon' just scrapped number 99 and my least favorite musical 'Grease' won the top prize. I know that this show was voted for by the British public, but something tells me that most who voted were non-theatre goers who could only name 5 musicals. In my opinion, the program should of been made based on awards, popularity and budget. Then it could actually be called 'The 100 Greatest Musicals', not 'The 100 Greatest Musicals In The Opinion Of All The People Who Voted'.

Don't bother Channel 4.
