Sometimes I Cry at Musicals

It's usually the last song before intermission. But not always…
  1. Wicked
    Dancing Through Life. The reciprocal dance between Elphaba and Galinda. Also For Good. But who doesn't cry during that song?
  2. Hairspray
    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
    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
    A few here. Without You. I'll Cover You (Reprise). Finale B.
  5. Mamma Mia!
    Slipping Through My Fingers. Again the mother and daughter relationship.
  6. The Sound of Music
    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.
