Famous musical - The Fantasticks

Famous Musicals

If you're a big fan of musical films and theatre, this article is sure to delight you to the fullest. We've compiled a list of some of the most famous musicals that have pulled in the crowds for years.
The Black Crook played in 1866 is believed to be the first musical.
When we're talking musical, we usually refer to either musical theatre or musical films. While the former is an amalgamation of music pieces, songs, dialogs, and dance, with the elements of drama, the latter is a genre of motion pictures that incorporate musical sequences as interwoven parts of the thematic narrative. Musicals have garnered tremendous fan following among cinema as well as theatre goers, and the cynosure of their appeal lies in the way the story and the central idea is conveyed by resting the dominant part of the narrative and much of the histrionics upon musical effects, songs, and artistic choreography.

Musical super hits like Moulin Rouge!, The Sound of Music, Chicago, and My Fair Lady have assumed a cult status among lovers of this genre of entertainment, and, in a way, they give you a feel of the bygone era of theatre and films, when most of the old-world-entertainment churned out by this media used to be in the form of musicals and ballads.
