StageAgent members ‘fan’ their favorite shows over 1000 times per week. As a result, we get a good sense of what shows the theatre community really likes. I’ve personally been curious if the same shows that are popular in the San Francisco Bay Area are also popular in New York City and other parts of the country and the world.

The slide show in this post displays the top ten most popular musicals, as voted by StageAgent members.  While the current top ten are all certainly well-known shows, it’s impressive to see the diversity of composer and genre.  Big-time composers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Alan Menken and Stephen Sondheim are all represented. But no one composer currently dominates the top eight.  Genres run the range from dramas to comedies and everything in-between.

Want your say? Make sure to visit the show database and fan your favorite shows! Without further adieu, here is the list of most popular musicals!

I’ll make sure to update this list often as the data changes. Click anywhere in a slide to go to that show’s StageAgent guide.
