From the title song of Ragtime to Floyd Collins' "Riddle Song," to "Rose's Turn," "Sunday" and "The Next Ten Minutes" from The Last Five Years, these are some of New York City actors' favorite showtunes of all time.

"If Ever I Would Leave You"

Charlotte Parry
"Somewhere" from West Side Story

Well, as kid I fantasized about being part of The Sound of Music. I wanted to have my own special imaginary singing family - swinging in trees in costumes made out of curtains, doing puppet shows with goats and singing lullabies every evening at big dinner parties. I wanted Christopher Plummer to sing "Edelweiss" to me... (although I find it so interesting that he apparently hated doing this. What does that say about good acting?)

Petula Clark
"Somewhere" from West Side Story. Nothing can top that, frankly.

Conrad Kemp
"Don't Cry For Me Argentina." Or "I Loves You, Porgy." Or "My Man’s Gone Now." Or anything else from Porgy and Bess...

Krystal Joy Brown
"And the World Goes 'Round"
That song just pretty much sums it up for me… "Sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're sad, but the world goes 'round." Yeah that pretty much says it all.

Jeremy Hays
"In This Wide, Wide World" from Gigi
"Pretty Women" from Sweeney Todd

Ben Fankhauser
I love "The Riddle Song" from Floyd Collins

Lee Tergesen
"Damned For All Time/Blood Money"

Jeff Hiller
"Change" from A New Brain. I’ve never met Mary Testa, but I wouldn’t mind being her best friend.
