Best Musicals That Didn’t Win Best Musical

I’ve made a series a lists for people to show what winners of the Tony Award for Best Musical they like and don’t like to get an average form what people’s favourite is. However, I see comments on Facebook saying I shouldn’t restrict it to just Best Musical winners. BUT SINCE I’VE ALREADY WRITTEN OUT THE RULES FOR HOW THEY WORK this is for the people who want their musicals that didn’t win Best Musical. I’ve already put some of the people’s favourite down below but what do you think was robbed?

#2 Newsies

If there is one thing I have learned from the internet, it is that incredibly talented male dancers recreating famous events while singing and dancing is better than a heart warming, realistic, unforced love story between two people who are drawn together by their love for music. But who am I to judge?

#5 Parade

The first time one of the most popular composers won a Tony Award for a emotional and very serious musical, it was nominated for many Tonys and was very likely to win. Instead it loses to a revue displaying the life of the most successful choreographer in history. Not too bad in my opinion but makes you think.

#16 Finding Neverland

For some fans of Finding Neverland, "The World [was] Turned Upside Down" when this musical was not nominated for a single Tony Award (and somehow was approved to perform "Stronger" during the Tony Awards despite this). However, this beautiful story with incredible music to match gained more favor with audiences than with the Tony Award Committee, winning Broadway.com's Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, so don't worry, Finding Neverland. The officials might have thought this musical was just a "Circus of Your Mind," but your fans and audiences "Believe" in you.

#18 Waitress

I know that Hamilton totally deserved a Tony because it was pretty amazing, Waitress still deserved something. It not only is hilarious, starred the one and only Jessie Mueller, and had a score by pop icon Sara Barielles, it also told the incredibly empowering story of Jenna (which any woman of any age can relate to tbh).
