Five Favorite: Musicals

“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous (and future) topics, click here. To participate, scroll all the way down.

This Five Favorite started off as an idea for my favorite plays – but the best theater experiences I’ve had were with musicals. (Oops.) To celebrate all the stage plays I’ve seen live, here are my five favorite.
