A musical set in Camden. Michaela Coel is extraordinary in the lead. Both she and her her co-star, Arinze Kene, are real ones to watch.

Not strictly a musical, but the song choices and usage of music overall are essential in this Australian drama-comedy.  And there is a musical stage show of it, if you want to colour your world…

The Bird Cage (1996)

Another ‘technically not a musical’ but this one is based on the French musical La Cage aux Folles. Had to be mentioned for it’s epic performance by Robin Williams alongside Nathan Lane and Gene Hackman. Iconic.
