Hello again! A little while ago, I wrote my first article about musicals I love. I thought no one would read it, but it got more hearts than I expected, so I guess you guys enjoyed it?

Recently I've listened more musicals and created collections for them. So instead of updating the previous article, I decided to write a new one. This article will have less musicals since I'm currently very, very busy and I don't have time to find new musicals to listen.

By the way, if you want to recommend me some other musicals to listen, you can message me. I'm very very new to this musical theatre thing and I always enjoy hearing about what other people recommend.

There may be some spoilers so read at your own risk.

1. Natasha, Pierre and Great Comet of 1812

Adapted from War and Peace (actually from 70 pages of it), Great Comet is definitely a very original and innovatory musical with it's electro-pop score, amazing decor and costumes and diverse cast. It's going to be one of those musicals that I will always be bitter about not being able to see live. Did not deserve to close so early and definitely did not deserve the drama surrounded it. Music, lyrics and book by Dave Malloy

2. Bandstand

Honestly, I recently got into this musical, so I don't know all the details of the plot or characters and I don't wanna give false information here. But it has an amazing soundtrack, the lyrics are beautiful. Bandstand takes place in 1940's, after WW2, and tells the story of a group of war veterans and how they deal with their ptsd through music.Book and lyrics by Richard Oberacker, Robert Taylor. Music by Richard Oberacker. (Also has Corey Cott and Laura Osnes as leads, do you really need another reason?)

3. A Chorus Line

I find this musical very intresting not only because music and lyrics, but because it's based on real life stories of real Broadway dancers'. Seventeen dancers audition for a Broadway show, to be part of the chorus. And all of them tells their stories about dance, about their past lives. Music by Marvin Hamlisch. Lyrics by Edward Kleban. Book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante. (Plus "What I did for love" is one of the most relatable songs I've ever heard.)

4. The Light in the Piazza

In 1953, Margaret Johnson takes her daughter Clara, to Italy for vacation, where they meet a young Italian man and they fall in love even they don't speak each other's language. But for some unknown reason Clara's family don't want them to get married. (I won't tell the rest, you find out yourself.) Lyrics and music by Adam Guettel. Book by Craig Lucas.

5. Rent

This is like Hamilton of 90's. Not because of the plot, because of the huge fanbase following them. It's adapted from Puccini's La Bohemé, takes place in New York during late 80's or early 90's and tells the story of a group of marginalized people Also this musical becomes so much more emotional after listening One Song Glory and Seasons of Love and then finding out about Jonathan Larson's life story. Music, book and lyrics by Jonathan Larson.

6. Bonnie and Clyde

Aka. Laura Osnes's first adventure with Jack Kelley. (I couldn't help myself, sorry) You probably heard of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, partners in crime. They both want to be famous, be recognized by people and to make their dreams come true, they start stealing and robbing and finally become celebrities (I mean, kind of). The reviews I've read about this musical were mostly negative and musical closed very early but stil, I think Bonnie and Clyde is a musical definitely worths to listen. Especially songs like "World will remember us." and "How about a dance" Book by Ivan Menchell. Music by Frank Wildhorn. Lyrics byDon Black.

7. Legally Blonde

I don't think I have to explain the plot of this musical, it's adapted from the movie we all know and love. As someone who's studying to get accepted into my dream university, I listen to this soundtrack a lot, especially the song "What you want" Music and lyrics by Laurence "Larry" O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. Book by Heather Hach.

This is all for now, I'm sorry for all of the grammar mistakes (I'm sure I did many since I'm basically sleeping while writing this.) I've also listened to Tick Tick Boom and Book of Mormon but I didn't make collections for them yet so I'll write for them next time. (hopefully?!) See you next time!
