The Tonys are not just a celebration of excellence in Broadway theater, but also a national showcase and public record of performances that are otherwise local and fleeting. The most memorable Tony Awards performances can echo in theater history for decades to come. But which are the best of the best? We've surveyed every performance of a nominated musical or musical revival since the very first Tony telecast in 1967, and here's our list of the top 30. Note that we're limiting ourselves to Tony-nominated Broadway musicals in the years they were nominated; don't look here for special material, musical guests, opening medleys and the like. But do expect plenty of thrilling music, go-for-broke dance numbers and dazzling Broadway divas. So without further ado—and steeling yourself for the possibility that some of your favorite Broadway shows may not have made the cut—prepare to be razzle-dazzled by the greatest of the Great White Way.
