Top 10 Best Musicals

The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Book of Mormon
42 High School Musical

How is this higher than little shop of horror, South Park, Hamilton, Book of Mormon, The King and I, Sweeney Todd, and Willy Wonka, and Rocky horror picture Show - germshep24

43 Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny

The greatest film in the world

44 Across the Universe
45 Sunshine on Leith

If Les Miserables was the big sweeping epic, Sunshine on Leith is the plucky indie darling.

Cynics might refer to Sunshine on Leith as McMamma Mia but at least it doen't have Pierce Brosnan's dying buffalo vocals.

46 Rocky Horror Picture Show
47 State Fair
48 Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812
49 Annie
50 Hello, Dolly!
51 Bedknobs & Broomsticks

Take the ingrediants of Sound of Music and pepper them with animated dancing fish, flamenco lobsters abnd one crazy soccer game and you get this much more superior offering.

52 Aladdin
53 Fame
54 Bugsy Malone
55 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
56 13
57 The King and I (1956)
58 Kiss Me, Kate

The whole thing- from the hilarious plot, to the colorful characters- and not to mention the sensational score by Cole Porter- is so 'Wunderbar', I know not what else to say. Oh, aside from the fact that it's partially based off one of the best Shakespeare comedies of all time. Bonus.

60 Newsies

I love Newsies so much, it is truly underrated.
