Get a look at all of the picks below, and be sure to fill out the bracket for yourself here to pick which show you most wanted to see become a TV live musical!

#LiveMusicalsBracket This was a very difficult decision, as I love The Drowsy Chaperone so much. But I think @WaitressMusical would appeal to a wider audience via television pic.twitter.com/wZB4rUM6vE- Christine Hughes? (@XtineHughes) January 12, 2020
These matchups arent necessarily which ones I think are best, just the ones I think should be broadcast to a well funded, accessible, and widely recieved audience pic.twitter.com/uXnAaWtrFu- Molly Carolyn Smith (@Do_It_Scared) January 13, 2020
