  • Starring John Travolta and Nikki Blonski, Hairspray is a story about a teen who loves to dance and tries to use her new-found fame for good to encourage diversity. Zac Efron is in it too, so there’s that! (Photo: Promotion)

  • The ABBA jukebox extravaganza Mamma Mia! is the ultimate feel good musical. While in many cases it may be considered a guilty pleasure, it is a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously. And it has Meryl Streep! (Photo: Promotion)

  • Dreamgirls has a well-rounded and talented cast. And while Beyoncé is awesome as always. let’s be honest—this drama about Motown and The Supremes is all about Effie, played by Jennifer Hudson. And we aren’t mad about it! (Photo: Promotion)

  • The Producer is the musical film that gets as close as the original Broadway show, even down to the casting of Nathan Lane and Matthew Brodrick! It has big musical numbers and it feels like a stage show in front of the camera. (Photo: Promotion)

  • Les Miserables is a weepy French musical set in the 19th century. Persecution, poverty, romance, revolution. You better keep the Kleenex close! (Photo: Promotion)

  • And of course, the “modern musical” by director Damien Chazelle, La La Land, following the story of aspiring actress Mia and traditionalist jazz musician Sebastian, struggling to hit the big time. (Photo: Promotion)
