In his essay "The Musical as Drama," McMillin argues that musicals are a unique and powerful form of theater that can combine the best elements of drama, music, and dance to create a truly immersive experience for the audience.

McMillin writes:

"The musical is a form that is uniquely suited to telling stories about the human condition. It allows us to explore complex emotions and ideas through the power of music and theater. In a musical, the music is not just an accompaniment to the story; it is an integral part of the storytelling process."

McMillin's musicals have been praised by critics for their originality, their theatricality, and their emotional power. He is a major figure in the world of musical theater, and his work continues to inspire and entertain audiences around the world.
