dancing's great obv -- the component of musicals that least interests me
I'm not afraid to say if you have no interest in dancing, you are automatically less qualified to judge musicals.

You're acquainted with musicals with un-silly plots?
High, Wide, and HandsomeHallelujah I'm A Bum!Les chansons d'amour (2007)Cheryomushki (Cherry Town)Dancer in the DarkWest Side StoryThe Pajama Game (stfu)
And that's to leave out backstage musicals and Bollywood (which kinda sorta doesn't count). I'd include these under 'silly' but most would disagree:

@NickPinkertonThere's no more chilling study of obsessive-compulsive self-destructive behavior in cinema than Donald O'Connor's 'Make 'Em Laugh' number.
While destroying his body, he merrily relates how this sickness has been transmitted to him through generations (father, grandfather).
