As if it were a Tony Award catagory...
Personally, I like the logo for Aida.

Wicked's logo has the ability to capture an audience of all ages by using that one word.

As corny as it was, I liked Little Women's.

Not to be rude but.. those are slogans. Not logos.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

Even though you were talking about Wicked's slogan, ActingAndy, I will say that it has a good logo too. The green and white contrast is very striking.

I think the CATS logo is one of the best I've ever seen. Yellow eyes of a black cat with human figures as pupils of the eyes. Simple and effective at the same time.

ASPECTS OF LOVE, MISS SAIGON and WICKED are all clever and catchy. DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, SPAMALOT and AIDA are all gorgeous... INTO THE WOODS rocks, too.

Both the original and the revival "Follies" poster logos were brilliant, but I think I prefer the second one too.

Carrie, Side Show, Woman In White, Saigon, Les Miz are 5 of my favorite logos!
...What happened next, was stranger still, a woman breathless and afraid, appeared out of the night, completely dressed in white. She had a secret she would tell, of one who had mistreated her. Her face and frightened gaze, my mind cannot erase...But then she ran from view. She looked so much like you...

WHY this perfect logo has been since changed to that dreadful, cartoonish artwork is beyond me.

The second Follies looks like it's a science fiction movie to me.

I will always love the Carrie logo. Brilliant.

I love Little Shop's logo. It's certainly not creative, but it just fits the show so well.

I agree, the other one is atrocious.

I don't care for the CARRIE logo. The EVITA logo is a classic, but I wish they had created a different one for the revival. I also like THE LION KING, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and SUNSET BOULEVARD.

I like how the Evita logo was re-imagined with colors more evocative of Latin America for the new London revival...not a new logo, but still creative I think.

A lot of the logos of the big '80s mega-musicals were brilliantly done because of the power they have--Phantom, Les Mis, Cats, Miss Saigon--but I think that's more from a marketing standpoint. I really like them all, but I don't know if I'd call them creative.

I think I might have to agree, the original Rent logo (in fact the entire look of the original marketing campaign) was really well done. It's especially apparent when you look at the Rent Bible--it doesn't count as a logo really, but they got the "look" down perfectly and were very creative in how they presented the show. I don't mind the new pink-brown-blue campaign, but it's definitely missing something that was there in the original.
