Ultimate Musical-Theatre Holiday Playlist

It’s that time of year when it’s appropriate to listen to Christmas music 24/7. I’m still patiently waiting for the day when we can see live theatre again, so I’m finding ways to get my theatre fix. Usually, around this time of year, theatres are gearing up for their holiday shows, whether it’s a Christmas-themed production or a feel-good production that’s family-friendly. In honor of the holiday season, I put together a musical-theatre themed holiday playlist for those that celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah.

Factors I considered when making this playlist:

  • A musical that features Christmas/Haunnukah as part of the plot
  • A musical that features a song about Christmas/Haunnukah
  • Famous Christmas/Haunnukah songs performed by musical theatre stars
  • Songs included in “Carols for a Cure,” an annual holiday album that features different Broadway companies singing holiday songs for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations
  • Christmas movies that didn’t fit the above criteria that made sense to include

You can listen to this playlist on Spotify:
