Best Broadway Musical Characters


The Top Ten

1 Angelica Schuyler Church (Hamilton) Angelica Schuyler Church (Hamilton)


2 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

14 Erik (The Phantom of the Opera)
15 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

Agreed. I used to be obsessed with her, then realized how clingy she was. - galaxyfox

16 Javert (Les Miserables)
17 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

18 Glinda Upland (Wicked)
19 Fanny Brice (Funny Girl)
20 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!

21 Mrs. Peterson (Bye Bye Birdie)

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

22 Gavroche (Les Miserables)
23 John Laurens (Hamilton)
24 King George III (Hamilton)
