While this year’s Tony Awards have come and gone (major props to our boy Frank Under- ummm, we mean Kevin Spacey) we’ve still got stars in our eyes. We mean, there’s music, and then there are musicals. They might be corny sometimes, sure. Maybe a tad unrealistic in portrayal. But even still, they are always infused with a little bit of magic, and for that we’ll always love them.
With your help, we dove into the world of Broadway, Disney, and musical films, too! Here’s what we found.
Which musicals? Here are the top five you guys grew up listening to:
- Grease (33%)
- The Sound of Music (16%)
- The Phantom of the Opera (16%)
- Fiddler on the Roof (7%)
- My Fair Lady (6%)
Of course, one of the most fun (and accessible!) ways to see musicals is to kick back and watch their movie versions. Since the 1950’s, dozens of stage-to-film adaptations have been imagined by talented casts and crews. You guys liked Danny Zuko’s best.
- The Lion King (35%)
Beauty and the Beast (34%)
- Aladdin (11%)
- The Little Mermaid (10%)
- Mary Poppins (9%)
There you have it! The reveals from all you musical theatre nerds at heart. Did we skip over any musical that you love? Is there anything currently playing that you’re looking forward to seeing? Let us know in the comments below.
