Musical Theatre songs

Musical theatre songs of the decade: listen to the playlist

As we reflect on the year gone by, we've also been taking stock and thinking about the past decade of theatre and while we're drawn to think about the productions that have stayed with us, we have also been giving good thought to some of the great songs we have been lucky enough to hear. 

Cast your mind back through the new musicals that have opened in the West End, the Broadway transfers, the Broadway shows we wish had transferred, and the countless classics that have been revived both sides of the Atlantic, there have been some truly memorable moments on stage. 

To celebrate, we have created a nostalgic playlist with some of our favourite songs from the best shows to have premiered or received revival productions in the West End or on Broadway since 2010, which you can enjoy below! This is by no means an extensive list, but a reminder of some of the great musicals we have been treated to. Feel free to suggest and other shows you think we may have missed on Facebook and Twitter

And if it helps spark inspiration, be sure to nominate your favourite new play and musical of the past ten years in our Show of the Decade poll
