Grab your headphones and turn up the volume. Today I’m sharing a new Tuesday Tunes playlist featuring my favorite songs from musicals!
Last week I went to see The Greatest Showman! Have you seen it? If not, you need to go immediately after reading this post. Anywho, for the past week, I’ve been listening to the soundtrack on repeat. This made me realize I’ve never shared a playlist of my favorite songs from musicals.
It probably won’t come as a surprise to hear that I’m a big fan of musical theater. Back in college a friend and I went to New York City for spring break and saw several different shows. Nowadays whenever I’m in NYC and have the time, I head to Broadway to see a new show. I’m especially excited to be in Pittsburgh this year because a number of musicals are coming to town in the next few months: Rent, Wicked, The Waitress, Aladdin,. . . The list goes on.
While it’s hard to compare, Wicked may forever go down as my favorite musical. Not only do I love anything related to the Wizard of Oz, but Wicked was the first show I ever saw on Broadway. I sat in the front row so it will always hold a special place in my heart.
Inspired by the soundtrack from The Greatest Showman, my love for musical theater, and Ben Platt’s Grammy performance, these are my favorite songs from musicals.
