Happy Valentine’s Day!
In my opinion, some of the greatest love songs come from musical theatre. There is something so beautiful about two characters finding each other and falling in love… it gets me every single time! Lyric has had a lot of love songs sung on its stages, and there are some great ones in our upcoming productions. Check out “My Junk” from SPRING AWAKENING, as sung by the original Broadway cast.
There’s also “One Last Kiss” from BYE, BYE BIRDIE coming up during our summer season, as sung in the movie version.
We also just watched Kira and Sonny fall in love to “Suddenly” from XANADU at the Plaza Theatre. This version is performed by members of the original Broadway cast.
Of course, you can’t forget the classics- like “One Hand, One Heart” from WEST SIDE STORY, as performed by Barbra Streisand.
What are some of your favorites? Do you fall for classics like “My Funny Valentine”? Or are you more modern, and prefer songs like “I’ll Cover You” from RENT? Let us know through Facebook, Twitter, or a comment on this post!
