My Favorite Showtunes

Sunday, September 26, 2021
Broadway is back baby! If my work schedule wasn't insane for the next couple months I would be getting tickets to as many shows as I could (afford to) see. I love musicals. So, I decided to list every showtune I love to celebrate.

Some of these I've actually seen performed. Others are from the movies. And then there are those I've never seen but found through following Broadway.

Because there are a multitude of productions of some of these musicals, and a lot of been made into great movies, I'm going to get as specific as possible about the performances that I love because I'm a nerd.

(Yes I know it's a long list, there's been a lot of great show tunes. And I'm pretty sure I'm missing a bunch.)
