Features of Broadway Hits

There are several reasons for these particular selections:

  • Multiple hit songs in each
  • Written by top composers of the era
  • Remembered as the biggest productions
  • Featured the best singers and actors
  • Highlighted captivating story lines

In addition, all of the musicals listed above take place in the OUT-OF-DOORS, which further enhanced the developing plots and gave the songs and story lines an added depth.

For instance, who doesn't remember the breathtaking mountain background scenes from the musical and movie
The Sound Of Music?

"Climb Every Mountain" comes alive when we watch the little ones struggle to scale the rugged heights in order to escape to freedom with their lives!
