Top Ten Best Broadway Musicals


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Dear Evan Hansen

I fell in love with Jared x Evan... They are so cute together!

Wow. That is all I can truly say for this musical. One of my faovrites; probably listed at third or fourth (Behind Hamilton, In The Heights, Les Mis., and probably Wicked. ) It brings such a diverse audience in, and when they leave, they are emotional wrecks and tearing smiles.
The beauty of this musical is truly fascinating. Just how Hamilton teaches kids History, how In The Heights teaches Spanish, and how Les Mis. Teaches slavery, this teaches people how to truly express emotion and how to be honest.
Truly one of the best musicals of all time.

42 Jesus Christ Superstar

Why so low?! I still like les mis and wicked better but this deserves at least the top five

43 Footloose
44 Finding Neverland

Absolutely brilliant! I was fortunate enough to see the Original Broadway Cast, and I've seen it on tour multiple times. No matter how much I watch it, I still laugh and cry every time. The music is gorgeous, and the dancing is incredible. This show needs to go back to Broadway after the tour!

This is hands down the best. Sucks that the first time I saw it was the week it closed.

Beautiful singing, dancing and storyline! Truly perfect!

Unfortunately I never got to see it on Broadway but I love it anyway! The vocals and music is incredibly! From a beautiful story to an amazing cast, FNL is just amazing!

45 Heathers: The Musical

Heathers: The Musical is better than the movie in my opinion. The opening song (Beautiful) is a great intro for the story. 'Candy Store' which is sang by Heather Chandler, Heather McNamara and Heather Duke is infectious and easily the best song in the musical with Dead Girl Walking being second. Very charming and funny, great for High School/Young Adult audiences. - Tamaranean

A great contemporary score and a stellar cast.

46 1776

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.

47 Next 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)

48 Mary Poppins

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

49 Urinetown

I liked the soundtrack of this show (Especially Snuff That Girl)

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

So underrated

50 Catch 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

51 Funny Girl

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

I love Barbra Streisand! So DON'T RAIN ON MY PARADE! - Prettygirl2005

52 Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812

A masterpiece - gucci

53 13

(UPDATE: I probably wrote this when I was well 13, and all I can say is wow my reasoning for not liking this musical sucks. However I don't think I'll see it simply because the plot is not my thing.) 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

Best play ever

This musical is terrible

54 25th 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

So amazing! at least top 10!

56 Avenue 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.

This list ranking is only for now. - PianoQueen

Puppet sex, 'enough said
