Favorite Genre in Musicals

Recently I was asked, what my favorite genre in musical theatre was. The problem is I don’t know if I actually have a favorite genre. There was some genres I have come across more than others, and that is because I have been around them longer. That has been one of the hardest questions. There have been the romantic musicals, the tragic musicals, the comic musicals, and some are a combo. So, I don’t know if I exactly have a favorite genre. One genre is still kind of new to me- which are the tragedies. I will list the musicals I do like or love- not the ones I don’t like at all. The mixed feeling musicals are still liked.

  • Les Mis
  • Rent
  • Miss Saigon
  • West Side Story


  • Man of La Mancha

Dark Romance/Comic Romance

  • South Pacific
  • Beauty and the Beast

The Others- No idea where to Place them
