Who needs “Unchained Melody” and “Earth Angel” when you’ve got Broadway? Leave it to songwriters like Jason Robert Brown, Bryan Adams, Anaïs Mitchell, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and more musical theatre writers to capture sweeping romance and giddy delight in song. This week’s Playbill Mixtape is your soundtrack to Valentine’s Day—or any day you need to feel the power of love.
This year’s Mixtape includes songs from more recent Broadway musicals like Dear Evan Hansen, The Prom, Pretty Woman, and the latest recording of Songs for a New World—plus others we missed in our playlist of duets from 2017.
Don’t worry. If this mushy stuff isn’t for you this year, check out Playbill’s other mixtapes:
Be sure to follow Playbill on Spotify for all of your ear candy needs and glimpses into the playlists of more of your favorite Broadway stars.
VALENTINE’S DAY REFRESH
Think Natasha’s longing in Great Comet. Think Tempations doo-wop (soon to be heard in Ain’t Too Proud.) Think Disney magic.
