Les Mis, Phantom, Wicked...? Or something newer, like Hamilton?

How many times have you seen your favourite, and why do you love returning to it?

In my opinion that would be A Chorus Line. It was my musical of musicals.

 

The great thing with human brains is they're fanless, nice and quiet although I'm sure mine whistles a bit sometimes.

How do you define long-running.  Hamilton has only run about 1,400 performances.  Until maybe 20 years ago, we never had long-runs like today.  Too broad a question.
