In continuing Playbill.com’s Back to School week, we put together a list of tunes to help you focus. Start with songs to motivate you to hunker down before mellowing out into steady study mode. For the first time ever, the Playbill Mixtape solely features covers and special arrangements of songs not from cast albums, but sung by theatre artists. Get to know a different vocal sound from the singers you love. Take note!
