Favorite Musical!

Just curious to see what musicals you all like (and why if you feel like it).

I think mine are

  1. Newsies (Fansie4Life!) :newspaper: :newspaper_roll:
  2. Sound of [name_f]Music[/name_f] (Loved it since I was little, and will always be in my top 3.) :musical_note:
  3. Mary Poppins (idk what to put here, and I like this one, so here it is!) :closed_umbrella:

You can put as many or as few as you’d like, and don’t feel obliged to put three or tell why, just do what you want!

I’ve never been to a professional musical in a theater but I really liked the recording of [name_m]Hamilton[/name_m] and The Greatest Showman

I really don’t watch a lot of musicals, but the ones I do like are:

  1. Hamilton (the recording is all I’ve ever seen, of course. It made my inner history nerd happy.)
  2. The Sound of [name_f]Music[/name_f]
  3. The Greatest Showman
