Universal acclaim it gives a unique slant to the story of one of America's original but forgotten founding fathers Alexander Hamilton by featuring a mash-up of musical influences ranging from musical theatre to hip hop the high energy production also showcases an inclusive and multi-ethnic cast to contrast the historical figures that they portray and speak to what the.

America of the 21st century actually looks like even though it's a young show Hamilton shows no sign of throwing away its shot number 9 The Lion King even though the task of bringing beloved animated stories to the real-life stage is daunting like when they first adapted Beauty and the Beast Disney somehow finds a way to do it well The Lion King a theatrical adaptation of.

The classic 1994 film is no different it's one of the longest-running and well-liked shows Broadway has ever presented it features dramatic choreography and graceful performances by dancers as well as impressive puppetry to bring life to the animals the amount of musical and physical talent crammed into this production makes it a favorite of both.

The young and young at heart number eight hairspray based on the 1988 film of the same name hairspray is the story about overcoming societal expectations as well as confronting racism all the while delivered through optimistic and energetic song and dance with lovable characters left and right infectious musical numbers as well as poignant.

Statements about acceptance hairspray has something for absolutely everyone from the opening number good morning Baltimore the audience is transported to a changing world in the early 60s and by the time the musical ends you'd better believe you can't stop the beat number seven West Side Story this modern-day Romeo and Juliet story.

Marked a turning point in theater the beginning of legend Stephen Sondheim's Broadway career West Side Story could have been all too predictable for audiences if not for iconic musical motifs like I feel pretty America and Maria with the Jets pitted against the Sharks tensions are high throughout the performance as the characters of Tony.

And Maria fall in love West Side Story manages to cram in social commentary on gang warfare violence and murder with the passionate music and sharp choreography the musicals end however is nothing short of heart-wrenching someday number six Chicago based on the true stories of accused Chicago murderesses.

In the roaring 20s Chicago is one of Broadway's longest-running shows filled with murder and manipulation the narrative of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly desperately grasping and competing for Fame is an enduring classic the musical has taken home a Tony for Best revival as well as a Grammy for Best Musical Theater album and for good reason Chicago has a whole lot of glitz blood.

And all that jazz and that number five rent taking on just about every controversial topic Under the Sun Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer Prize winning rent tackles the difficult subject of living under the shadow of hiv/aids following a ragtag group of starving artists the stories of.

Their relationships and their ideas on life and mortality are beautifully told through song sometimes with hope and optimism and others with depression and a sense of defeat with subject matter like sexuality homelessness drugs and death this show is not for the faint of heart but for.

Those who open themselves up they might just start to measure their lives in love number for cats this musical deserves a mention for its costume design alone each unique Jellicle cat brings their own pizzazz to the stage dancing intricately to an award-winning and catchy score composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber though they're all cats each character has their own individual.

Personality and their own unique voice even if you're skeptical about a musical with felines we guarantee you'll get choked up by memory as of 2016 katz claims the spot as the fourth longest-running Broadway show of all time but watching these kiddies run around never gets old number three wicked.

we all think we know the story of the Wicked Witch of the West but have we ever stopped to listen to her side wicked recounts the friendship that blossoms between alpha and gelinda before they became the wicked and good witch respectively the songs composed by legend Stephen Schwartz give depth to characters we all thought we knew and.

Present a unique peek into the world of Oz before a certain girl from Kansas came along with something for both younger audiences as well as adults this fairly new musical has already asserted itself as a Broadway staple number two The Phantom of the Opera side how could we not mention the.

Longest-running Broadway show of all time with well over 10,000 performances Andrew Lloyd Webber's story of love kidnapping and murder has been captivating audiences for decades dark dreamy and mysterious the haunting melodies performed by the cast as well as the on spiring set design keep the performance locked into the Broadway.

Halls of Fame regardless of how much time passes this classic tale doesn't seem to be going anywhere a fact critics and theater goers are more than happy to hear before we unveil our top pick here are a few honorable mentions .

number one Lamy Zurab a stirring tale of courage war and moral strength Lina Zurab was inspired by Victor Hugo's novel of the same name set against the backdrop of France on the verge of rebellion Jean Valjean or prisoner two four six oh one escapes the watchful eye of Inspector Javert and.

The Lion King was certainly too low on this list! The Color Purple, & Fiddler on the Roof should have been mentioned as well!

I disagree with most of this list, the earliest musical mentioned was West Side Story, all others were very recent, but there were a great many musicals by great composers such as Frank Leosser(Guys and Dolls) Cole Porter( Anything Goes) ect. My Favorite musical is The Three Penny Opera, which is certainly better than say, Wicked. Two other Steven Schwarz musicals Godspell and Pippin are better musicals than Wicked for that matter. I could do a whole rant on just why and how much a I hate the musical Wicked!

How is Hairspray higher than Hamilton? 😂 I like Hairspray, but, see, it doesn’t CHANGE theatre; Rent changed theatre, Showboat changed theatre, HAMILTON changed theatre; I don’t know, I just feel like this list is weird 😂

Are you kidding? Other than the inclusion of West Side Story, this list doesn't come close to being the Best of All Time. And I say that as someone who saw the original casts of Kismet, Camelot, Hello Dolly, Man of La Mancha and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

You left out Jekyll & Hyde which should be top 3, Miss Saigon, Jesus Christ Superstar and Sunset Boulevard. I would take out A Chorus Line, Cats, and Hairspray

The only one I don't agree with is Cats. I've seen a lot of Broadway plays, and this was the worst!

I think it is a bit annoying. Memory is one of the best songs in musicals, but one song does not make the show one of the top 10 ever
