27. Best revival of a musical.

UK Tour for the 25th Anniversary of Les Mis. I have never seen a more perfect rethinking of an already awesome show. It's not a revival persay, since it was still playing in London (actually, at one point, Les Mis was on in 3 theatres simultaneously in London), but it's the best I can think of - the props, sets, projections, even adjustments to lyrics and music, were all perfect. It went back to the spirit of the book more than any production I've ever seen.

18. The musical that you’ve seen most recently.

Les Miserables UK Tour was the last major one, which was stunning. I didn't expect it to be quite as wonderful as it was: perfect cast, amazing sets, edited and improved direction. As close to a perfect musical as I've seen.

I also have my DVD stash as well, but I don't think they count.

3. A musical that makes you sad.

The title speaks for itself: Les Miserables. Every time I see this show, I cry somewhere new, depending on my mood. Usually, it's Little Fall of Rain, but occasionally, Fantine's Death. There are other places, but yes, while I love this show dearly and could watch it a thousand times, it makes me bawl like a baby.
