* ''Theatre/LesMiserables''



* Parodied in ''Theatre/TheMusicalOfMusicalsTheMusical'' with the Creator/AndrewLloydWebber pastiche "Aspects of Junita," in which Junita and Bill complain that their relationship is deteriorating because "we never talk anymore," since they have to relate to each other in "this wretched recitative." Subverted when Bill finally speaks: "Junita, we have to talk. Yes, talk!" Up until this point, only the stage directions are spoken.



* ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'' features very little dialogue that ''isn't'' sung.

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}''

to:

* ''Theatre/{{Hadestown}}''
''Theatre/{{Hadestown}}'': Has some spoken lines, but even those are spoken in verse rather than natural-sounding dialogue.
* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}''''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'': In a clever take on this, the dialogue scenes take the form of rap numbers.
