One of the best 1990s Broadway musicals was “Beauty and the Beast” and it is also one of my favorites. It’s interesting to see what other people like in this era of Broadway musicals.

1. Which is your favourite musical from this decade? Why?
I can't just choose one. My holy trinity of '90s musicals is: Titanic, Ragtime, and Parade. I loved that Ragtime (at least in its original Bway production) gave us an epic production with an epic score to match. Titanic was ambitious, technically impressive, had an excellent and underrated book, and one of the most glorious scores of all time (imho). Parade tells a tragic true story magnificently, treating the characters with humanity and featuring a flawless score.

2. Which musical on the Top 10 list is least deserving of a spot? Why?
Sunset Boulevard. I like a few of the songs, and I recall the touring production having a pretty cool set, but I just didn't think it was that good of a show.

3. Which musical from this decade that didn't make the list do you think should have appeared in the Top 10? Why?
Lots of good shows to choose from, but I have to go with Floyd Collins.

4. Which cast recording of a show that premiered in this decade is your favourite? Why can't you stop listening to it?
Ha, as if there could be only one. I'll just go with the original Bway cast recording of Titanic since I have it on the brain at the moment. Lush, epic, full of tension and beauty. Love love love it.

5. If you could pitch a film version, television adaptation or revival for a musical from this decade, which would you choose? Who would you cast? Discuss.
The Scarlet Pimpernel. That show is just too much fun, I bet it could be a blast on screen. What's Douglas Sills up to these days?
