Above is just a small sampling of the Broadway shows I've seen over the years.
While working on a project recently, I went through several boxes where I store my Playbills. I only needed to find one specific Playbill, but it was hard not to pause and acknowledge the wave of feelings that washed over me each time I came upon a program that sparked a memory.
I've been fortunate to work in the theatre industry in one way or another for more years than I care to admit. And long before I began working in the industry, I was an avid Broadway attendee.
There are so many Broadway songs that evoke strong feelings for me, each feeling unique and dependent on the narrative of the show, and where I was in my life at that moment while I was in the theater.
We all have different favorite shows and songs and we respond to them in our own way -- but I think we all understand in the same way that sense of a fundamental, very personal experience that Broadway evokes.
So today, in honor of how much Broadway has meant to me and how much I've missed it over the past year, I will be listening to a song list I put together of some of my favorites tunes.
I think you'll find some of your favorites in there, too?
The playlist is called "Robin's Broadway Faves" and the running time is about what a standard Broadway show running time would be. I look forward to putting on my Bose headphones and letting this one-of-kind medley seep into my soul.
This combo of songs weaves its own new narrative. Shuffle them, and you'll create another new narrative.
That's what I hope for Broadway when it returns. New narratives, new beginnings.
I hope you enjoy my playlist.
What are some of your Broadway favorites and why? What songs should I add in?
