Roger Avary's Favorite Musicals

I'm film director & writer Roger Avary, and these are my favorite musicals, ranked. It's super difficult, and super close, between my top 7 -- all of which I love as my favorite in different ways. This ranking is how I feel today. I've excluded Disney animations, which are marvelous musicals which really belong within their own ranking.
