Question: What is the most common musical genre today!?
Musical Revue, Book Musical, or Musical Comedy!? I thought it was a musical comedy or book musical!. I would think musical comedy, but either or makes sense!. Thanks, and why is this!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I would say book musical, because we are constantly getting more and more dramatic musicals that are less "showy!." Shows like Spring Awakening are a good example of this!. There has also been a rise in rock operas/musicals such as Rent, The Who's Tommy, and Jesus Christ Superstar!. Here within the past decade, the jukebox musical has increased in popularity!. Shows like Mamma Mia, Jersey Boys, and Movin Out are popular because people know the music!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
