Musicals are beautiful pieces of art that should be treasured and loved, but do you know which ones you should watch first?
1. Hamilton : An American Musical
Hamilton is about the life of, you guessed it, Alexander Hamilton. The creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, came up with idea of this musical from the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. One of the many reasons I picked this musical is because how the whole musical makes you feel like there with Hamilton and going through all his troubles with him.
High school drama, young love, and a lovable psychopath is what you find in the musical Heathers. Veronica Sawyer is just a normal high school nobody until the Heathers make her one of them, well technically, made her work for them. With her new popularity, Veronica finds herself in trouble like you couldn’t imagine.
3. The Sound of Music
We all know and love the movie The Sound of Music, but did you know that it’s a musical too? It’s about a nun named Maria and how she’s assigned to govern the Baron von Trapp’s SEVEN children. This musical is full of adventure, heartbreak, and a happy ending.
Musicals are great in my opinion, and you if think the same, then you should totally check these out. All three are filled with excitement, enjoyment, and overall great music numbers.
