School is back in session this week, and to celebrate the millions of Americans who are hitting the hallowed hallways once again, we asked readers to name their pick for favorite Broadway teachers. Find out which characters made the grade!
1. Phantom (The Phantom of the Opera) – 40%
Angel of music, when’s the midterm? This ghoulish music teacher has an unconventional approach to vocal instruction and a certifiably creepy attachment to his star pupil—but hey, at least he’s dedicated!
2. Tom Collins (Rent) – 9%
He’s a part-time professor of computer-age philosophy at NYU, but it’s his boho-chic style that’s got readers clamoring for this Santa Fe-bound charmer…and amateur ATM machine hacker.
3. Miss Honey (Matilda) – 8%
When it comes to the people you meet in school, you can’t get more teacher-y than Miss Honey. She’s like every elementary student’s dream—and every Trunchbull’s worst nightmare.
