After seeing SF Playhouse’s wonderful version of “Camelot,” it made me think of how awful the movie was and that made me hate the musical. Don't hate the show. Hate the movie!
With that in mind, here’s a list of bad musicals. And bad doesn’t mean fun and campy – like a “Xanadu,” “Glitter,” “Staying Alive,” “Sgt. Pepper” or “Can’t Stop the Music.” They are gems compared to poorly cast, boring and inspid productions that either have actors that can't sing or singers who can't act. I tried to go back only 40 years to come up with the musical to avoid.
