Best Musicals Of The 21st Century

Welcome to the Renaissance! Within the last 20 years plenty of new shows have reached the great white way. Here are some of the BEST musicals of the 21st Century. So far…

#10 Kinky Boots

Kinky Boots is full of life, color, and drag queens. During it's run on Broadway, notable people have stepped into the 2 1/2 foot boots of the musical. Such as Brendon Urie of Panic at the Disco, as Charlie Price, Wayne Brady from Who's line is it anyway as Lola, Youtube Star Todrick Hall as Lola and Pentatonix singer Kristin Maladonado as Lauren. Plus to add to it Harvey Fierstein, who was the original Mrs. Turnblad in Hairspray, wrote the book of the musical! 

#15 Waitress

If you walk into a high school theatre, there is most likely a song from Waitress on deck on someone's Spotify playlist. Waitress made history by having an all female creative team. The last time that happened was 1978 with The Runaways. Waitress is a must-see musical straight from the heart.

*To be noted, it's best enjoyed with friends. 

#19 Dear Evan Hansen

Even though Dear Evan Hansen it's a very elaborately designed show, it has made an impact on making the world a safer place to discuss mental health and suicide. As "Waving through a Window" has become an anthem for those who don't feel like they belong, "You will be found" reminds us that even when the dark comes crashing through, when you need someone to carry you, when you're broken on the ground You WILL Be Found.
