Top Ten Andrew Lloyd Webber Musicals


The Top Ten

1 The Phantom of the Opera


Please...yer killin' me slowly.
Musicals are the bane of entertainment. The one exception is "Fiddler"--the movie, with Chaim Topol, which is much more movie than musical.

2 Jesus Christ Superstar

My brother's high school did this play when he was a Junior in high school (he's a Junior in college now), and ever since I've seen that play in his high school, I've had the same 3 words stuck in my head...

"Jesus Christ! Superstar! " - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

A lesser-known fact is that Ian Gillan of Deep Purple first performed the role of Jesus Christ on the audio album and Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote it for Gillan's voice. Director Norman Jewison wanted Ian Gillan to reprise the role for the film but Gillan turned down the offer because he was busy touring with Deep Purple. So Jewison hired Ted Neeley for the role and the film was released in 1973. - Metal_Treasure

3 Cats

I went to see this once it was the best thing ever

Sam is amazing

it's a cat

4 Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

I've seen this live three times. My favourite song has always been the Pharaoh's Elvis parody.

"Well I was walkin' along the banks of the Nile..." - PetSounds

I was in a play of this

5 Evita

Beautiful - the music is really well written and is by far his best

Best music by far

6 Aspects of Love
7 Love Never Dies

Incredible musical. It was compared too much with The phantom of the Opera. No one really gave it a chance, which is such a shame - Britgirl

8 Song and Dance
9 Tell Me On a Sunday
10 Sunset Boulevard

Hauntingly beautiful music. Glenn Close's voice is perfect for the phenomenal score

The Contenders

11 School Of Rock
