By Chavi Pande1 February, 2017 3 min read

Musicals have been there in Hollywood for a long time, but rarely have they become so widely popular as La La Land. Damien Chazelle has taken inspiration from many classic Hollywood musicals for his film and he has succeeded in making a movie that's reminiscent of the old times and modern at the same time. For many people, La La Land was an introduction to musicals. If you're one of those who were bitten by the musical bug and are craving more musicals to watch but have no idea where to begin, we're here to help you discover your new favorites.
