23Spring Awakening

This musical is honestly amazing. It has a great soundtrack and sends a controversial message.

25Legally Blonde: The Musical

How can you not love this show? It defies the stereotypes of blondes and gives young girls a role model; Elle Woods. She teaches young girls to be/believe in yourself, stick up for what you believe in, and follow your heart, no matter what anyone says. - ElleWoods

I always look at this musical as a perfect example of character development. Elle woods starts up as one person and ends pup as someone completely different.

It is amazing and has the best music ever

I love this musical

26Beauty and the Beast

Well this one I haven't seen it on Broadway or really much, but it's an okay musical. It's not my favorite, but it's not bad. - Anonymousxcxc

I don't hate it, but God Annie is so annoying.

28Shrek the Musical

Shrek The Musical is my favorite musical and my dream show to perform in. It is so funny, the plot is phenomenal, and the music covers almost all genres and is BEAUTIFUL. Listen to Who I'd Be for a goosebumps ballad or Morning Person for a fun upbeat song. It is such a good show.

It isn't the best, but it's still quite entertaining. Also, it has a couple of really epic songs, such as I Know It's Today and Who I'd Be.

This was my first Broadway musical I ever saw! I saw it when I was 7 I still love it to this day! Also John Tartaglia made the BEST Pinocchio! But this is one of my favorite musicals.

If you saw the most modern version of this, you'd be blown away. The story is great, the actors are amazing, and the acrobatics are stunning! The show in itself is just so impressive. Deserves a top ten.


The music in this is so good. I love In my Own Little Corner.


One of the best, brilliant powerful songs and great acting!

34We Will Rock You
35Anything Goes

The fact that I had to add this to the list is sad beyond compare, and it should be way up at the top at least 20-25. It is a classic, and no matter which version you listen to, Patto LuPone and Sutton Foster, or whoever, are all amazing. CLASSIC!

36Oliver! (1961)

Have you ever watched it? It's the best musical ever, Ice age even used their song, Food Glorious Food

37Little Shop of Horrors

FEED ME! This is an AWESOME story! I love this one!

38The Music Man

Every dance, every song, and every character sparkles with something that cannot be anything else but pure, wonderful genius and beauty. The memory WILL live forever.

This is the second longest-running musical all-time and it is at #26!? IT is so fun to watch and perform and it has fantastic songs and dance.

Perfect. An inspirational show which will never not be as incredible as it always was and is.

This is a weird show but I like the songs
