In other languages and cultures, it's perfectly common that a song does not need a rhyming scheme. Therefore, musicals in many other languages tend to make more sense: putting a bunch of words to a melody is actually pretty easy when you've had some training and experience in the field and/or are naturally talented and/or already had words prepared (i.e. "If You Were Gay" from Avenue Q - it's quite possible that a bit of thought went into that before it was sung). So, aside from a ghost orchestra and hordes of trained dancers appearing, it makes more sense in other languages even without these hypotheses.
