Musicals that are set in a certain period in history have an innate ability to just bring you back to a time you never thought you would be able to experience. As enticing as modern-day musicals are, historical musicals have that special nostalgic touch of those that parallel a time almost forgotten. Here are four history-heavy musicals (both in film and theatrical adaptations) that are wonderful portrayals of different time periods.
The Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
The Sound of Music by Rodgers and Hammerstein
Ang Huling Lagda Ni Apolinario Mabini by Dulaang UP
