Not a Wildhorn show in the bunch. Seriously, the original Follies for me.

I fear this will be as limited as the original one.
ARTc3 formerly ARTc. Actually been a poster since 2004. My name isn't Art. Drop the "3" and say the signature and you'll understand.

oh how wrong of me! I loved Wildhorn scores and it is a sin that i forgot him! Shame on me! But as you can see, select ďOthersĒ and then right the name of the show down so it can be counted please! If you feel this is as limited as the first one please explain why and i could perhaps change it.
We want to get proper Broadway fans thoughts and get a clear winner!

As of today Sweeney Todd is winning! Enjoy

Who are the Morons that put Kinky Boots as the greatest of all time?

Anyone who thinks Kinky Boots is the greatest musical of all time needs to see MUCH more theatre.

I don't see CAROUSEL on the list, which is very disturbing.

Itís all a matter of taste. Those who voted for Kinky may actually have seen tons of theatre, but love Kinky the most. It all just depends whatís your fancy.

How could you forget WONDERLAND, one of the all-time classics?!?!!
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I also don't see how Carousel can be missing, as well as the Tony winner Bye Bye Birdie. If you are going to include a flop like Side Show then at least make it one like The Scottsboro Boys that got 12 nominations.

My choices:
My Fair Lady
Les Miserables
Gypsy
West side Story
South Pacific
A Chorus Line
Rent

I feel very, very old.

I can't think of one musical written in this century (so far) that deserves to be on any "Ten Best" list.
