On a dreary day, we want you to be able to relax and unwind to the rhythm of the rain. This week’s playlist meshes solo tracks by theatre artists like Sara Bareilles, Megan Hilty, Idina Menzel, Billy Porter, and Barbra Streisand and smooth sounds from shows like The Bridges of Madison County, Pippin, Sunday in the Park with George. Consider this a theatrical thunderstorm, starting gently with raindrops, crescendoing, and pattering away. Curl up with a cup of tea, turn on this Playbill Mixtape, and watch the water fall.
Think the strumming guitar of Once’s “Gold.” Think the percussive beats of Billy Joel’s “River of Dreams” a là Movin’ Out.
