Over the years, Broadway has had many blockbuster shows that played for more than five years.  In the old days, you had to come to New York to see a great show, however, in the 21st century replications are established throughout the country,  Jersey Boys is a classic example of how the success of a Broadway product can be seen throughout the country.

My five all time favorite shows are (not in any order) Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Sound of Music, Guys and Dolls and West Side Story.  Many folks would tell me that some of the more modern shows like Jersey Boys and Book of Mormons should be included.  Still others would claim that Cats, A Chorus Line and Phantom of the Opera should be included because of their longevity on Broadway.  What about the great Rogers and Hammerstein show likes South Pacific or Oklahoma?    My favorites are arrived at based on the story line and the memorable music I experienced at the theater. My list is not as permanent as engraved business gifts.  What changes would you make to my list?
