Poll: Best Cast Recording of 2017

It’s no secret that original cast albums were the gateway drug for many lifelong theater addicts. Just ask Lin-Manuel Miranda or Todrick Hall.

Choose your favorite recording from among the 10 below, listed alphabetically, which were released in 2017.

If your favorite is not on the list, fill in the “Other” slot. (If enough people choose an “other” album, I’ll add it to the poll.)

Update: Thanks to the “Other” selections, I’ve added Groundhog Day to the poll.
