Around the World in 80 Musicals: Part IV: Asia and Oceania

Today our world tour continues to the East, with stops in 7 countries. This week's adventure covers 10 more musicals - some huge hits, (including 2 classics!); others, notorious flops. We'll even visit a mythic island. On this leg of our journey, we'll see Nellie and Emile, Anna and the King, meet a Shogun, and confront the World Champion of Chess. Good times! Buckle up! Priscilla is a feisty bus

The data comes from The Playbill Vault and Internet Broadway Database, and details the original Broadway production. Many of the shows take place in multiple countries, but (for the most part) we include them under their primary setting. In limiting it to 80 shows, obviously some favorites are going to be left out. We'd love to hear from you with your favorites that we missed.
