The 12 Best Musicals of All Time (That I’ve Actually Seen)

It's arbitrary list time, folks! Being a consummate nerd, I keep a spreadsheet of every professional musical production I've seen. I'm up to 67 unique shows at this point, and I was curious how I would rank them. I don't feel it's really fair to rank a show unless...
