Masterpost of Musicals by Category/Style

You requested it, here it is! Some shows fall into multiple categories based on their style, and many things in the contemporary and pop/rock sections could easily be moved around between sections.  In addition, many modern musicals have aspects of both legit singing and belting, in which case I’ve tried to categorize them based on their overall feel. If you see that I’ve missed a show and want it included, shoot me a message and I’ll get it added!

Note: If you think something is miscategorized, just send me a message!  No big deal!  I certainly haven’t seen all of these shows, so I had to make assumptions based off of what I knew.  I don’t mind corrections at all, and will thank you for respectfully pointing out my mistake!  That being said, I kindly ask that you don’t passive aggressively tag this complaining about how a show is is in the wrong section.  I am so happy to change any mistakes, but being rude about it really serves no purpose.  :)

Cary Grant's suaveness. Humphrey Bogart's aloofness. Jerry Lewis' inner child. Spencer Tracy's spirit and wisdom. Jack Lemmon's sarcasm. Gregory Peck's tolerance and willingness to listen. Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire's ability to dance. And as for looks, well, any of them will do!<p/></p>

Happy Birthday to the icon of dance, Gene Kelly!

My grandfather, being from his generation, raised me on classical movies by Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire, Danny Kaye and many other musical legends.

These guys were not only actors, they were dancers, choreographers, singers, writers and comedians. They were truly Hollywood’s finest.
