What are your favorite musicals? (stage productions, not films)

Recommended Posts

We have many threads detailing our favorite films, but I'm wondering what are our favorite musicals? Being a fairly big lover of musical theatre, I'd love to know what musicals have most resonated with you, regardless of whether you have tons of experience with the theatre or relatively little.

My top ten would be:

1. Sunday in the Park with George

2. Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street

3. Carousel

4. Into the Woods

5. Fiddler on the Roof

6. West Side Story

7. Follies

8. Little Shop of Horrors

9. The Phantom of the Opera ('cause it's fun, and I enjoy well done Lloyd Webber)

10. Assassins

(I'm also a huge Sondheim fan, incase that wasn't obvious from that list.)

"Anyway, in general I love tragic artists, especially classical ones."

"Even the forms for expressing truth can be multiform, and this is indeed necessary for the transmission of the Gospel in its timeless meaning."

- Pope Francis, August 2013 interview with Antonio Spadaro
