  • Legally Blonde from Legally Blonde
  • You Gotta Die Sometime from Falsettos
  • Words Fail from Dear Evan Hansen
  • She Used To Be Mine from Waitress
  • The World Was Wide Enough from Hamilton
  • One Song Glory from Rent
  • Empty Chairs At Empty Tables from Les Misérables
  • Obviously plenty more please add to this list

appreciate musicians in musicals. so much unbelievable talent is on stage that it’s often easy to forget the performers playing the music their vocals accompany. appreciate the orchestra. appreciate wonderful trumpet players and flutes and trombones and clarinets and oboes and tubas and all the other wonderful instruments that are apart of our favorite musicals because they have 8 show weeks like everyone else yet their talent is quite often brushed away. appreciate musicians no matter if it’s their voice or their instrument being heard.
