From “Legally Blonde” to “Hairspray” to “Mary Poppins,” theatergoers and fans of high-school musicals will have plenty of showtunes to sing from now through May, with 62 musicals planned.
I put together a Spotify playlist with songs from nearly all of the musicals. Sorry, Fox Lane, but Spotify doesn’t have a recording of “Smile” to draw on. And for “Working,” I chose James Taylor singing “Traffic Jam.”
This has been fun to pull together. Consider it an extreme overture for the high-school season ahead. You can scroll down and listen to dozens of songs you’ll be hearing locally.
