In the religious category, a musical I like that was not mentioned is The Cotton Patch Gospel. There is a DVD recording of the stage show. On rock operas, what do you all think of rock albums that were intended to be if not operatic, then narrative, such as The Who's Tommy, Rush's 2012, and Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime? Since there wil never be another musical podcast, I have to mention Springtime for Hitler from the Mel Brook's movie The Producers.
BradWarfield I remember seeing the production of Cotton Patch Gospel in Kingsport in the late nineties, and its take on the gospel narrative is certainly fun, even if the only musical number I remember is "Somethin's Brewin' in Gainesville," largely because both of my kids were in fact born in Gainesville. I'm not sure there will NEVER be another musical podcast. After all, how many Plato and Aristotle episodes have come and gone since we were foolish enough to title an early recording simply "Plato"?
