You probably won't be alive for all time, though, so you should probably pick a favorite of the ones you've seen so far.

The ORIGINAL productions with the ORIGINAL casts of

were the most thrilling nights in the theater that I have ever experienced.

I'm not sure these are really the top 3, but they're my favorites:

1. The Phantom of the Opera
2. My Fair Lady
3. Maybe Les Miz or Sweeney Todd or Fiddler on the Roof or Carousel or Camelot or 1776 -- I'm not sure I can pick a #3.

Believe it or not, I haven't seen Wicked, so that may become #3, based on what I've heard about it.

1. Jekyll and Hyde
2. Les Miserables
3. Beauty and the Beast

I really wanted to put American Idiot on this list (as I absolutely LOVE the score), but felt like it would be cheating since I unfortunately never actually had an opportunity to see it.
