Singing, Dancing, Drama, Fun, Laughter .. musicals have it all!

Don’t know about you, but I love a musical.

I don’t mind whether it’s at the theatre or a movie version. When I was creating my list, I started to wonder what consititutes a musical. Apparently, the definition is:

A play or movie in which singing and dancing play an essential part.

Now that’s cleared up here we go with my top 20 – not in any order of preference as that would make my head fall off if I tried to rank them as well. You may think differently of course, I couldn’t possibly comment. Feel free to post yours or disagree ;).

  1. Fiddler on the Roof – best bit
  2. West Side Story
  3. Oliver
  4. Sound of Music
  5. Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
  6. Hairspray
  7. Cabaret
  8. Singin’ in the Rain
  9. My Fair Lady
  10. Grease
  11. The Producers
  12. Annie Get Your Gun
  13. Chorus Line
  14. Phantom of the Opera
  15. Bugsy Malone
  16. South Pacific
  17. Moulin Rouge
  18. Tommy
  19. Rocky Horror Picture Show
  20. Les Miserables

Ok there’s loads I missed off. Then I think some are theatre shows rather than musicals. Also, are some just films with singing in them? Plus, a la Les Miserables – they sing the whole thing. There’s hardly any talking involved! Argghhh it’s a minefield making bloody lists ;).
