Top Ten Best Broadway Musicals

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Tarzan

Tarzan is hardly talked about in the musical theater world and that breaks my heart. It is one of my dream shows and the #1 show to guarantee me goosebumps. I love Jenn Gambatese's voice and oh my goodness, For The First Time is the most beautiful ballad in all existence. It. Is. A. Beautiful. Show. Go listen to the soundtrack-it's so underrated. Especially if you love Disney or ballads-Tarzan is for you.

Amazing musical that's very underrated. You'll Be In My Heart and Two Worlds are both amazing songs - punyraisin

62 Jersey 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!

63 Something Rotten

Clearly there aren't real theatergoers here otherwise this would be way higher. Funny as it gets, especially for the die hard theater and shakespeare fan. Everything is an inside joke.

The show of inside jokes of thespians. Amazing show. Got to perform "A Musical" in a musical revue a year ago. Super fun and super fun to watch too!

Now that it's over, I'm so sad. It was so good.

Oh, God I love Shakespeare!

64 Damn Yankees
65 Assassins

An interesting take on the tragic stories of the deaths of presidents and somehow pulls it off

66 A Chorus Line

ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY KIDDING ME?! A Chorus Line is a classic, and a PULITZER PRIZE WINNER! Being thirteen, I heard my mom talk about it all the time, so I decided to watch a video of the show. It's incredible! The actors portray their characters perfectly and the dancing is spot on. The musical numbers are a classic as well. definitely should be in the top twenty, if not higher.

67 The Producers

I listened to these songs and died laughing.

72 Blood Brothers
73 American 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!

74 Sunshine 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.

75 Seussical

It may not be the BEST musical of all time, but it does hold the title of one of the funniest musicals of all time. Every role is a good role, every song is amazing, and it is super fun to watch, listen to, and be in. I've been in it twice, once as The Cat In The Hat and once as a Bird Girl (the bird girls are such fun parts! )

I auditioned for the cat this year but got a who. =( (I admit that here on who is a fun song though. )

It may not be the best, but it is surely amazing. It has FIFTEEN GOSH DANG DR. SEUSS BOOKS.

It also has the most catchy song ever, "Biggest Blame Fool", which is just my opinion.

Seussical is an absolutely amazing and unique musical with great and hilarious music. It is also one of the only musicals to have a stellar MTI Junior broadway script based off of it. Seussical, Jr. is probably one of the best scripts in the entire MTI Jr. collection! - punyraisin

76 Bye Bye Birdie
77 How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Lol my high school just did this for our musical. We had a great cast, crew, and pit, but the director decided to screw everything up by changing EVERYTHING around literally the night before we performed.

The revival with Daniel Radcliffe was AMAZING!

78 Honk

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TOUCHING STORY ABOUT ANIMALS! Why is this not even on the list yet? The touching story of the ugly duckling is just so good, with one of the most memorable solo songs ever (Different from Honk, look it up! )

79 Kinky Boots
80 Company

It's hilarious because it's so true! Says so much about modern relationships, maybe more than any other piece of art.
