Herein, why are plays better than musicals?
Generally speaking, plays stick to spoken dialogue in order to tell a story, while musicals do it with song. Plays focus on the spoken word, while musicals set those words singing (so does opera, but that's another topic) and even dancing. But wait. Turns out, lots of plays incorporate music in one form or another.
