Musicals Thread (Food, Glorious Food)

Welcome! The purpose of this thread is to talk about all things related to the wonderful world of musical theatre. Each week (or so) I will post a thread with a topic/question for everyone to respond to. This is also a great place to mention any new musicals you’ve discovered and/or general recommendations for other musical fans. Heard/seen any good shows lately? Have any theatre news to share? Tell us about it!

*clears throat* Magical food. Wonderful food. Marvelous food. Beautiful food. Food, glorious food glorious fooooooood!

‘Tis the season of food (that’s what we call it, right?) so let’s talk about food in musicals! I came up with this week’s theme while on the road yesterday, so are there other musicals other than Oliver! that have songs about food? I don’t know, you tell me. Sweeny Todd? My husband suggested Little Shop of Horrors. Or, in his exact words, “feed me Seymour?” Really, I just wanted to make sure we had a Musicals Thread this week because it’s been too long, and I want to hear about all the musical news/adventures that you have to share. But, of course, talk about any and all food in musicals too. Or, maybe you’re still reeling from that new Cats trailer from last week and need to talk about that some more. No matter what your musical needs are, this thread is here for you.
