The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites ~ Favorite Horror Musical (Stage or Screen)!

Friday Favorites ~ Favorite Horror Musical (Stage or Screen)!

Horror and musical theater go together a LOT better than one may first thing. The best operas have always featured an element of violence, usually ending in the death of one or more principle character. Outside of the opera, theatre staples from Sondheim (love) to Webber (loathe) have showcased horror elements in some of their best known works. When it comes to horror MOVIE musicals, those have been just as popular, drawing in horror fans with the promise of gore and sneaking in a song or two for good measure.

So this week, the Honeys have decided to share their favorite horror musicals! Some for stage, some for screen, but all *jazz hands* fabulous!
