Since 1949, the American Theatre Wing has bestowed its Best Musical award to more than 50 Broadway productions. While the COVID-19 pandemic has left us in suspense over who will take the 2020 Best Musical Tony (a rescheduled date for the 2020 Tonys has not been announced as of this writing), the Great Pop Culture Debate wants to look back on the winners from 1949 to 2019 and determine the Best “Best Musical” Tony Winner of all time — and we want YOUR opinions!
Below find a list of every show to win the Best Musical award at the Tonys as of May 2021. Go through, select up to 32 of your favorite shows, and submit your picks. Then send to your friends and have them chime in on their favorite Best Musical winners — the more votes, the better the debate! You can also access the poll by clicking here.
The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed in Season 4 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in late summer 2021. For related episodes of the podcast, like our Best Movie Musicals from Season 3, peruse the Episodes link above.
The poll will run until Thursday, May 27. Make sure to submit your answer by then!
