Melbourne is home to many of the most beautiful theatres in the country, meaning we get pretty lucky when it comes to major musicals. From West Side Story to Jersey Boys, we're absolutely spoilt for choice.

Here's our pick of the musicals Melbourne is getting excited about, from recently opened blockbusters to the best shows coming soon. If you're after something of blockbuster scale without quite so much singing and dancing, head to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
