I Hate Green Beans Podcast 18: Favorite Musicals

I am a fan of musicals. That’s weird to admit. It’s like saying, “Hey y’all, I hate green beans.”

After recording this podcast with my friend Stephanie, I forgot how much I love musicals. Choosing my favorites was next to impossible, and as the podcast goes on, I realize there are beloved musicals that I completely forgot. Dreamgirls, for one. Jennifer Hudson and Bey? Yes, please. Also, Rock of Ages. Tom Cruise as an 80s rock star? I’ll allow it.

Stephanie and I dig deep. Here are a few things we discuss:

Lina Lamont’s diction training – Singing in the Rain

How I had a crush on all the boys in Newsies


Does Elphaba from Wicked wash her green makeup off every night?

The fact that the Lion King‘s opening “Circle of Life” number gives us chills

I like Zac Ephron singing “Ladies Choice” from Hairspray. No judgement.

How the “Happy Little Working Song” from Enchanted is both enchanted and gross

Here’s a link to Stephanie’s favorite version of Cinderella

And our affection for the “Elephant Love Song Medley” from Moulin Rouge

Plus many, many more. I hope you like it!
