I was paging through More Opening Nights On Broadway, Steven Suskin's delightful collection of excerpts from reviews of Broadway musicals 1965-1981 (and sequel to Opening Night On Broadway covering 1943 to 1964).
"Everyone ought to have a favorite Broadway musical. Personally my favorite for 10 years has been A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum."
Here's Clive Barnes on the 1976 Zero Mostel revival of Fiddle On The Roof:
"Everyone must be entitled to a favorite musical. Mine, apart from Aida, is Fiddler On The Roof."
I bet he thought he'd get away with it.
