I could never pick just one. I love all musicals, some standouts for us were:
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
All Shook Up
The Wedding Singer
The Pirate Queen
Recently, off-Broadway: Rock of Ages - awesome show!
We loved Shrek, believe it or not this was a great show.
Two of my lesser favorites were Chicago and Phantom of the Opera. I liked Wicked, but not enough to want to see it again.

I don't have one favorite.
I loved Aida. Also Phantom, Les Miz, and The Producers. I also enjoyed Jesus Christ Superstar on Broadway. I saw it in town and was not as impressed.
I was not fond of Cats and saw Rent one time. I was glad I saw it but would not choose to see it again.
DH has not seen Phantom so we are going this Spring when it comes back.

I'll add Phantom as well.

And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
It will be in the valley of love and delight.

That was the first show I saw on Broadway (I had seen Annie on tour up to that point). Saw it with David Cassidy in 1983. I saw it again in the 90's with some former teen star and I can't remember the name.

I've seen a bunch but Beauty and the Beast will always be my favorite. I saw it at least 8 times since the year it opened and I cried when I found out it was closing (it better have a revival once I have kids...or there will be more crying)
My second favorite was Spamalot. I Got DH (then just DBF ) tickets in the front row of the balcony on the opening night of previews, which was Valentine's day a few years ago. He is a huge monty python fan and even though frankly I don't like their stuff I LOOOVED the show. I'm sure it helped to have the best cast possible....Hank Azzaria was there, need I say more?

It is hard to pick one favorite out of the many I've been fortunate to see but the list would include:
Musicals: She Loves Me, Guys and Dolls, For Me and My Girl, Woman of the Year, 42nd Street, Fosse, Chicago
Plays: Othello, Noises Off, Streetcar Named Desire (with Blythe Danner as Blance), You Can't Take It with You, The Real Thing, Moon for the Misbegotten, Nicholas Nickleby, Much Ado About Nothing and Cyrano de Bergearc (Derek Jacobi played Cyrano and Benedick----fantastic, fanstastic production!!!)
