  1. Why is always the german trailer with voices of Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth which is use to show Wicked ? Don't get me wrong, I love Willemijn but that's so confusing ^^

  2. 10. Charlie and the chocolate factory
    9.lion king
    8. 42nd street
    7. Little shop of horrors
    6. Matilda
    5. Miss Saigon
    4. Wicked
    3.mamma Mia
    2. Les mis
    1. Chicago

  3. Go and watch Mamma Mia!☺ I went and saw it last year and it was fantastic, never seen such a great beformance before😄😜

  4. I went to see the lion king as a child on a school trip I don’t remember much all I remember is it was loud huge room and they added sprinkles for the effects of rain

  5. I love Charlie and the Chcolate factory and wish it would come back! And I love the Lion King! But why no Matilda?

  6. Everyone has their own opinion. It would help to add the date you made your list. Was Chicago playing and missed?

  7. Charlie and the chocolate factory ended and I was lucky to see it twice and once in a box seat, I also have the playlist on my phone and the broadway one is not there because ew no offence to Americans but that playlist was just bad but it’s so sad it ended🤧🤧

  8. I did not see the London production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but I was not wowed by the show. As a whole, it just feels lacking and sparse.

  9. Lion King first? LMAO. I mean, sure it's great, but first? Les Miserables at 7? After Billy Elliot and Thriller?

    I am not very experienced in musicals, but I think the best at no definitive order should be Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, THEN MAYBE Lion King and whatever…

    Also, Cats and Matilda are far more deserving that the Commitments and probably many other plays of that list.

    Did you figure up the list on dice, while drunk?

  10. Phantom of The opera number 2?! WHY?! IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 1! ITS THE SHOW EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT! I JUST SAW IT IN LA FOR THE FIRST TIME!
