The Hamilton for people who don't know what Hamilton is. (If you don't know Hamilton there's something wrong here).

I'd rather watch this than Hamilton any day.

43Urinetown

48? This musical has some of my favorite songs ever!

Isn't this the one that Ariana Grande was in? Okay then I'm not seeing this (my hatred for Ms. Grande is very high). It also sounds stupid anyway based on the storyline if you look it up. - Anonymousxcxc

45Mary Poppins

Why isn't this in the top 10? Mary Poppins is an absolute classic!

46Funny Girl

It has wonderful songs such as I'm the greatest star and Don't rain on my parade who are really ICONIC.

4725th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

One of the most creative shows ever written. Changes from night to night, and funny every single time.

Best show ever written. Go listen to the I love you song right now

48Catch Me If You Can

I love Aaron Tveit, and the song "Someone Else's Skin" is one of my favorite dance songs, but this musical is not my fave.

This musical is absolutely BRILLIANT! Aaron Tveit and Norbert Leo Butz have INCREDIBLE chemistry making the show so much enjoyable. The music is FANTASTIC, it's funny and simply amazing

49Avenue Q

Fantasies come true is amazing and hilarious at the same time because they're singing in cute puppet voices

Hilarious. Not much else needs to be said. Genius? Yes- but still hilarious.

50Next to Normal

This show deserves to be in the top 20, at least, but for me it's number 1. The chemistry between the actors and the characters they play is so real, the emotions are so raw. Each song is beautiful and special. It's like nothing I've ever seen before. I only have to hear or see 10 seconds of some songs/scenes and I'm tearing up. This musical is beautiful, it discusses real issues, and doesn't follow any..cliche formula.

How is this not higher? I had to scroll all the way down to the bottom to find my favorite musical! What? Next to Normal is so heart-wrenching, and has AMAZING music! (I'm Alive, I Am The One, and so many other songs)

51Jersey Boys

As an italian actor trying to get somewhere. This is honestly such motivation. So sad its almost over. Best show I've ever seen!

This is the best show I have ever seen! It was absoultely amazing! The crowd stands up and dances, how is this not higher!

52School of Rock

Rant and rave and scream and shout,get all of your aggression out,they try to stop you let em know exactly where they all go,STICK IT TO THE MAN! school of Rock =life

53Once Upon a Mattress

This show is so fun to perform!

This musical is so awesome!

54The Producers

I listened to these songs and died laughing.

59American Idiot

Doesn't come compete with musicals like Les Miserables and Phantom of The Opera, but definitely one of my favorite shows. Deserves a top 20.

Good story and amazing music! Plus the set is so good too. Perfect!

60Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith does for The Proclaimers songbook what Mamma Mia! Did for the ABBA songbook.

And I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more

If you know anything about The Proclaimers, you could go ok someone will go to America to send back a letter (Letter from America), there will be a character called (Oh) Jean who probably should have been loved, someone will be on a journey from misery to happiness, the's going to be a big proposal of marraige (Let's get Married) and someone will promise to walk 500 miles.

But all that doesn't matter as you will be entertained.

Technically a Dundee Reps production but It can hit big on Broadway nonetheless.
