What is your favorite musical


Iwould put Jesus Christ superstar At Number one I know the pope saw it I think im not sure if it was accurate.
1JC Superstar/ 2? Phantom of The Opera
3 Love Never dies
4 Les miserables
5 Frankwildhorn Dracula
I can’t think of any others


I’m still a sucker for The Music Man.


My favorite is probably The Music Man. With 1776 a close second (can’t believe I forgot that one in my initial post)

Others I like, in no particular order:

  • West Side Story
  • Brigadoon
  • The Sound of Music
  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers


That Japanese one about the lawyer…
I don’t really know anything else.


Fiddler on the Roof
You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown
R & H Cinderella (the original, not the re-make)
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Little Shop of Horrors
American Idiot


I forgot about that one. Loved it as a child. Didn’t realize till many years later that the Prince resurfaced as Alan Quartermaine on “General Hospital” in its heyday.

  1. The Blues Brothers
  2. Jesus Christ Superstar
  3. Singin’ in the Rain

plus the Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers musicals in general.


Funny, I’ve never thought of The Blues Brothers as a musical. I love that film! Made in my hometown.


Yeah, there are a bunch of films with music that I don’t think of as “musicals” per se, like the original John Waters version of “Hairspray” (which started as a film with music in it and got made into a “musical” later), and Prince’s “Purple Rain”. I didn’t count those.


A bajillion times better than the remake film OR the stage musical!


I like The King and I :slight_smile:


South Pacific
Sound of Music
Mary Poppins
Little Shop of Horrors
Moulin Rouge

One that I’m going to try and sneak into the category because it is my top 3 favorite movies: Oh Brother Where Art Thou?


If we’re talking stage musicals, then my two favorite have to be Les Miserables and Hamilton.


How could I forget this one? (While Mandy Patinkin is my favorite cover of this, there is something about hearing it from the composers)

Also to add, Pirates of Penzance AND Hamilton!!!


The Sound Of Music
The King & I
Jesus Christ Superstar (the original not the one with John Legend)
Fiddler On The Roof
The Rocky Horror Show (my naughty pleasure)


A toss between
The King and I


Les Mis
Jekyll and Hyde (the gothic version)
The Phantom of the Opera

Not ordered by favoritism…they are all pretty much #1


The Sound of Music
My Fair Lady
Bye Bye Birdie!


Rossini’s Stabat Mater. Pon Pon is a close second, but not really.


Sweeney Todd.
