Mine have been mostly the same for years, probably because the only thing stopping me from playing them is that I haven't physically succumbed to time. Though I'll admit this is less of a "roles I must play" and more of a "top five grounded in reality that I would choose if given the chance."

Narrator - Dreamcoat
Robert - Company
Jesus - Jesus Christ Superstar
Geoffrey - Lion in Winter
Hamlet - Hamlet

Matt from Fantasticks and Romeo of Juliet fame have already been consummated and retired from the list (though I wouldn't mind doing Matt again sometime in the next ten years). I did land Hamlet at one point but the production folded, so that's still valid (and I see now that I would have been good but not entirely ready at that time, so it's all good).

Mungojerrie - CATS
Red Caboose - Starlight Express
Alfred - Tanz Der Vampire
Mary Sunshine - Chicago
Annas - Jesus Christ Superstar

Oh course, ensemble or any other part really in any of those shows goes without saying.

Oh I completely forgot about The Baker in Into The Woods! Right now in my life I feel closer to that role than any other role I've ever known!

I totes got it down to five, how amazing of me
In no particular order
1. The Emcee - Cabaret
2. Claude - Hair
3. Hanschen - Spring Awakening
4. Link Larken - Hairspray
5. Ensemble - Chicago
^I know ensemble seems like an odd dream role but none of the male leads get to do the awesome choreography, and at least i'd get a few lines.
