It's usually the last song before intermission. But not always…
  1. Wicked
    E431430e a384 4512 8462 4f0b0e401180
    Dancing Through Life. The reciprocal dance between Elphaba and Galinda. Also For Good. But who doesn't cry during that song?
  2. Hairspray
    1d3aa5d1 0e34 40a0 83d6 f3ee4f3def43
    Welcome to the 60s. For some reason, the relationship between a daughter encouraging her mother to do something hard, like leaving the house even though she is self-conscious of her weight just killed me. I lost it.
  3. Hamilton
    Df8e5f62 8387 4d60 ab39 96db33806a96
    It's Quiet Uptown. Okay, number one, I should not have listened to Hamilton for the first time ever AT WORK. And number two, my parents' youngest child was killed by a drunk driver. And even though the loss of a child almost always causes divorce, they are still married and strong. How I did not lose it during this song is absolutely beyond me.
  4. Rent
    14fe39d2 3079 44fa 84e2 d2160c88ffee
    A few here. Without You. I'll Cover You (Reprise). Finale B.
  5. Mamma Mia!
    7ae217d6 d87a 4ae9 ba03 5e11a968c48f
    Slipping Through My Fingers. Again the mother and daughter relationship.
  6. The Sound of Music
    Ae8367a6 fbef 45fd 94ee 7257775441ac
    Edelweiss. It's always made me emotional but when I finally noticed that Angela Cartwright (Brigitta) was struggling to hold her tears. Well, now I cry every time.
