My Ultimate Broadway Playlist
Like many people, I have favorite songs from various Broadway shows. In fact I'm listening to some of them as I write this. Here are the songs that go on my playlist. They're my favorites from shows I've seen, show I want to see, or shows I love for other reasons. For the purpose of this list, I've organized them by show and where I can added a performance of one of the songs. Enjoy!
