Top Musical picks

If you know me, you would know that I am a huge musical theatre fan. I absolutely love the theatricality of it all, the dance routines, the harmonies. Goodness, I really can't get enough. I luckily live quite near to London and to a theatre where a lot of touring companies come. Next on my list are definitely Miss Saigon and Les Mis!

 I still haven't seen half the musicals that I would love to (tickets are expensive, man!), but here are some of the top picks of the musicals that I have seen - it was very hard to whittle them down! 

The Phantom of the Opera
Where to even begin with this musical. The score, the special effects, and the chandelier, just perfect. This was an absolute dream to see live and I would love to see it again. 

My best friend took me to see Wicked for my 18th. I had been listening to the soundtrack for years and it was absolutely perfect. I cried during I'm Not That Girl and had to stop the urge to belt out defying gravity in the middle of the theatre. And the costumes are phenomenal. 

Legally Blonde
OMIGOD you guys! Legally Blonde was such a feel good musical, I still listen to the soundtrack to make me feel better if I am having a bit of a low day. 

The Book of Mormon
And last but not least, the Book of Mormon is probably the best thing I have ever seen on the West End. I can't remember laughing so much at something before. The singing, the dancing, the songs were just amazingly hilarious. A definite watch! 
Are you a fan of musicals? Which are your favourite? 



  1. Great post! Phantom and Book of Mormon are definitely up there in my (many!) favourites too. I actually wrote a post about my favourite theatre experiences a few weeks ago - Spring Awakening and Into the Woods are definitely very close to the top of my list.
