In high school, I would listen to “Some Girls” from ONCE ON THIS ISLAND and just cry the tears of 10,000 dramatic teenage girls. “Don’t you get it, Ti Moune? He loves you, but he can’t love you! The cruel realities of social class will tear your love asunder!!” It was pretty deep. Truth be told, it still gets me.
Rebecca Naomi Jones - AMERICAN IDIOT, PASSING STRANGE
“One Hand, One Heart” from WEST SIDE STORY.
David Larsen - Hands on a Hardbody, Billy Elliot
A favorite love song written for Broadway… “My Funny Valentine” from Babes in Arms. The simplicity of finding the one thing only you could love. It has also been recorded on over 1300 albums by over 600 artists. But, the first song that came to my mind was, “God Only Knows” from Good Vibrations. A song that Paul McCartney has called one of the greatest love songs ever written. I got to sing that song in the show. I also met my wife, Amanda Kloots-Larsen, during that show and sang it to her on the altar.
Christina Sajous - Spider-Man, Baby It’s You, American Idiot
‘Suddenly Seymour’ from Little Shop of Horrors
Stark Sands - AMERICAN IDIOT
“With You” from PIPPIN
