Top 10 Best Musicals

The Top Ten

1 Les Misérables Les Misérables Product Image

Brilliant but complex story all casts of the show are amazing

I watched this and I had never listened to most of the songs before, but after I listened to them a bunch. It was very good

Amazing musical, leaves you in tears of bittersweet joy, whether you're watching it live, or watching the 10th Anniversary concert with Colm Wilkinson on youtube, or the 2012 movie starring Hugh Jackman (among other superb actors) it will stay in your mind and heart for ages. If you're like me and had the fortune of being a part of a production of it, it truly leaves a mark on your soul. If you see only a few musicals in your life, this should be one of them.

Forever my favourite musical of all time. Though it is pretty darn close with The Phantom of the Opera, I'd probably have Les Mis come out on top, just because of it's emotional/moral aspect being a bit more personal and real for most people. Colm Wilkinson is AMAZING in both :D

2 The Phantom of the Opera

This is the BEST musical EVER! The music is amazing and the story is the best.

Yes. Very deserving of first place. Away from the classic, all-singing, all-dancing colourful Hollywood musicals (which I adore), this is my favourite "serious" musical. Dark, brooding, romantic and with a touch of humour thrown in. A powerful story with an equally powerful score. The overture and the opening of the duet The Phantom Of The Opera makes my heart thud. Quite simply fantastic.

Of course. The best musical, stunning to watch on stage, on film and to even just listen to the soundtracks.

THIS MUSICAL SHOULD BE ABOVE THE OTHERS ITS WAY BETTER

3 Wicked Wicked Product Image

great plot that has fantasy and characters you connect with

My all time favourite musical as well love the story and listening to the songs I have seen it 4 times and next year going to see it again for a 5th time with my family for my birthday next year in may 31st my family have organised this for me as I am going to be 35.and I absolutely love this musical so much that always loved it so much because I love the music the songs and the story this has been such an dream to me and I can't forget how many times I have loved it so much best show ever I have ever seen.

The music is great and I love the effects of the Dragon and the Oz.

Watched this on west end and was blown away by the set costume and music as well as the storyline.

4 Mary Poppins Mary Poppins Product Image

Only one word to this; classic!

Good show

5 The Wizard of Oz The Wizard of Oz Product Image

I was Scarecrow and love this show! Beautiful story and so much fun to be in.

-Catherine

This is the best movie, let alone musical of all time

great for children but not boring for adults

I'm going to be honest here: I really hate musicals Because most of them have songs that don't add anything to the film just there to waste time most musicals in my opinion would be better if well they weren't musicals some musicals have some of the best plots I have ever seen yet they are ruined by pointless 5 minutes songs that slow the film down.
That being said The Wizard of Oz is defintley the best musical

6 Hamilton Hamilton Product Image

Not one thing I would change about it. From the set to the songs everything in this show is fantastic. It makes me cry every time and the emotion all of the actors give is truly wonderful. Lin has created a wonderful piece of art and everything time I hear it I think of how "lucky we are to be alive right now" when we can listen to this marvelous show.

I love how Lin turned history into something I enjoy. I also love the the interaction with the set and how it is used.

Literally the best musical I have ever seen! Love the soundtrack so much

Lin-manuel Miranda is an amazing writer, choreographer, and musician. He has his brain wired to write these amazing plays and he should write more. The Hamilton family are great supporter too and it's a great cult haha.

7 Hairspray Hairspray Product Image

Best musical ever

So funny and a great show! get your tickets now!

8 The Lion King The Lion King Product Image

Haven't seen but really want to see. I hear the puppets are great.

Great costumes, awesome colours, emotional and creative! Best ever!

The best creative show full of colours and emotions

This is a fun movie and nice tracks

9 West Side Story West Side Story Product Image

Makes me cry for hours after I hear it. The choreography is amazing and gives sad but true insight on how this event would've taken place in real life.

Brilliant music from Leonard Bernstein, simple but fantastic lyrics from Stephen Sondheim

My favorite movie ever. If you voted for anything else, you probably haven't seen this movie, or musical. Pure perfection

I've seen this movie to many times. I don't have positive memories of it, but I don't know why.

10 The Sound of Music The Sound of Music Product Image

It's a musical that my entire family loved growing up and they showed it in school a lot too.

Mary poppins, the sound of music and les miserables are awesome

Very good I have seen it a lot

Emotional and amazing!

The Newcomers

? Cover Girl
? SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical

It's funny, heartfelt, creative and clever. The singing is great, the acting is great (Pearl is meh but she's got an amazing voice), and the sets and costumes are great.

The Contenders

11 Cats Cats Product Image

Ahh.. I can't even express how much I love Cats. Great songs and characters, and when the cast is on point (like in the 1998 movie), it's phenomenal.

Andrew Lloyd Webber should be ashamed of himself. Has anyone ever heard of Stephen Sondheim? All of his musicals are better than this. Absolute garbage.

Absolutely incredible. The score superb (Memory, Macavity: The Mystery Cat... look it up, they're all amazing), the dances are awesome (yay for Gillian Lynn! ), and the costumes and set design simply cannot be beaten (They're cats dancing in an oversized junkyard! It's so cool! ). And although we're talking about the stage show, the movie was absolutely phenomenal- finally, a movie-musical from the last 20 years that casts people because they're actually good instead of famous! Pure brilliance.

It is one of my personal favorite shows, especially the music!

12 Grease Grease Product Image

Great musical! I know all the song lyrics! Really catchy and a great watch!

Grease is my favorite musical, and it would be my favorite movie if not for "American Graffiti". I like the original Broadway performance better than the movie and it irks me when people say Sandy has to be a blonde Australian onstage... When in the original, she's an all-American brunette. :) But, all that aside, Grease is definitely a classic. It might be a bit mature for some audiences though.

Lion King is the greatest movie with an incredible score and great songs. But unless you're talking about the west end show, the film doesn't really count as a musical. Because the story is so great. Grease will always be the greatest musical

Grease is amazing and I love John and Olivia Amazing bravo

13 Rent Rent Product Image

Music is amazing

WHEN THE RENT REVIVAL HAPPENS I WILL BE A PART OF IT! ¡Viva La Vie Boheme!

14 Burlesque Burlesque Product Image
15 Music Man Music Man Product Image

Do you know the territory?

Wait, maybe I should have voted for Les miserables...
Nah

The best!

16 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Product Image

I love the custom candy bars and hoe kids are into it.

A timeless classic

17 Billy Elliot Billy Elliot Product Image

I love Billy Elliot! Ever since I was in it up until I got to see it on Broadway!

Absolutely fantastic music, story, characters, everything. This musical literally changed my life - it inspired me to be who I want to be despite how my peers or parents felt about it. It talks about a deep societal issue that is still ongoing and often not spoken about. While gender barriers are much less strict than they used to be, it's still more acceptable for a girl to embrace masculinity than for a boy to embrace femininity and Billy Elliot demonstrates that issue in a way that had me laughing and crying throughout the show.

18 Into The Woods

I adore fairytales, and all of the great songs in this musical. One of my favourites!

My favorite musical. Great story and well written songs!

I love Rapunzal and Little Red Riding Hood in Into The Woods

I love Rapunzal here

19 Heathers Heathers Product Image

Its is so funny I sing all the song every day to cheer me up totally recommended

The storyline is bottom-line AMAZING. It manages to be comedic, dark, relatable, and satirical all at once. Heathers is a depiction of school and society as a whole (exaggerated as it may be), and it makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Great musical!

Love this show! such a huge entertainment, my fave song is candy store 100%

THIS IS THE GREATEST MUSICAL EVER! funny, relatable, great soundtrack

20 Singin' In The Rain

This is my favorite movie of all time!

Just amazing

The best tap dancer ever is in this movie! Gene Kelly is incredible and so is Donald O Conner with “Make em laugh” It’s just so good and it doubles as a comedy! What more could you ask for?!

21 My Fair Lady My Fair Lady Product Image

My favourite musical changes depending on my mood (tomorrow it could be Singin' In The Rain, Guys And Dolls, Oliver! or more serious musicals such as Les Mis or The Phantom of the Opera; it's too difficult to choose an all-out favourite. But my mood at the moment is willing me to give my vote to this pretty, elegant, enchanting and oh-so-charming musical.
