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.

43 Urinetown

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

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

So underrated

44 Mary Poppins

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

45 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)

46 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

47 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

48 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

49 Evita

I have only one word to describe Evita: Incredible - bubbleteaknj

So amazing! at least top 10!
