I've only been to a handful of Broadway shows, which I know is already very fortunate. I'm going to say Hamilton was my favorite because I was madly in love with him years prior to the hype of the musical.

Honorable mention to Kinky Boots - watching Brendon Urie from Panic! at the Disco (my fave) dance in red thigh high heels was a great experience.

I love Les Miserables, and I Dreamed A Dream is the most depressing and moving song I know. I love it.

I love seeing Broadway shows. Of the many musicals I've seen, my favorite has to be Escape to Margaritaville. It was easily the most fun I've had in NYC

I've seen Jersey Boys, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, How to Succeed in Business, and the Color Purple! But I love musicals in general, especially on screen until I can see more live.

TCM is doing 'Mad About Musicals' for the month of June. They started with Depression Era Musicals 1920s through to 1960s/1970s. So, right now that's how I am getting my fill.

I love Broadway musicals as well. After looking at their schedule, TCM is showing a few musicals I haven’t seen yet. I look forward to watching. Thanks for sharing!

I love musicals. I've only seen a few live though, "Spamalot" and "Addams Family" most recently. Some times a younger theater group will do a "junior" version of a musical, e.g. "Guys and Dolls jr."

Oh boy, I have always loved Broadway musicals. Their joy for me is kind of hard to quantify, but I absolutely love Phantom of the Opera and I love all of the songs, but Music of the Night is probably my favorite. My little girl self loves Beauty and the Beast. Even though I haven't seen them yet, I also love Book of Mormon, Les Miserables, and Hamilton. I just want to see them all, honestly!
