The Top Ten Best Broadway Musical Characters

Angelica Schuyler Church (Hamilton)

Love this girl!

I think you mean...
“And Peggy! ”

Nice

WOw

Veronica Sawyer (Heathers the Musical)

She is amazing

Wait, I don't think this was ever on Broadway - SassyEquine

Aaron Burr (Hamilton)

The character of Burr in this musical is a work of genius. Like many have said, it would have been typical to make Burr just another terribleness person that was only a cold hearted villain, but Lin went in depth with his character and we truly get to see Burr for who he is- a human. He is just an interesting character with so many layers.

He da best

Romeo (Newsies)
Elphaba Thropp (Wicked)

She is absolutely gorgeous!

She is just plain gorgeous! - Wickednerd

Don't let being diffrent stop you! - Wickednerd

She can fly!

Katherine Plumber (Newsies)
Miss Honey (Matilda the Musical)
Bonnie Parker (Bonnie & Clyde)
Benjamin Coffin III (Rent)
Connor Murphy (Dear Evan Hansen)

I rub my nipples and I moan with delight- this guy is honestly pretty funny

The Contenders

Christine (The Phantom of the Opera)
Matilda Wormwood (Matilda the Musical)
Erik (The Phantom of the Opera)
Eponine Thenardier (Les Miserables)

I totally disagree with the comment before this. She is a perfect representation of the character who is affected by the plot and characters in ways you wouldn't notice unless told. She is a lot like Peron's Mistress from Evita.

I feel like I'm the only one who didn't really like her? She was kind of annoying, the way she followed Marius around and just wouldn't leave him alone.She just couldn't accept the fact that he had no feelings for her at all. She kept doing all these things to get him to like her and didn't know when to just give up. - SassyEquine

Fiyero (Wicked)

SO CUTE, even after he becomes a scarecrow!

Such a winky prince

So hot!

PLEASE CAST ZAC EFFRON AS FIYERO IN THE 2021 MOVIE! - Wickednerd

Evan Hansen (Dear Evan Hansen)
Javert (Les Miserables)
Crutchie (Newsies)

How is he not first!?!? SO adorable and just enjoys life. Even in the refuge he's optimistic. He is the greatest broadway character, I can't express my love for him. - SassyEquine

He must be 1. He’s amazing he so cute he just tries to enjoy life. I like Romeo too I know somebody and he pretends to be him. He says, “ I flirt! ” And I say, “ no. You fart 💨 “

John Laurens (Hamilton)
Alexander Hamilton (Hamilton)
Glinda Upland (Wicked)
Fanny Brice (Funny Girl)
Lafayette (Hamilton)

This guy is amazing! Best French accent, he is a quick talker, and he makes you want to sing along in the many songs he sings in!

Best and funniest character ever! I played her once and I am a boy
