Broadway Songs about Growing Up

Broadway Songs about Growing Up

Growing up comes with a lot of feelings and new experiences, whether it’s a child learning new skills, or a young adult growing older and coming of age. In Broadway musicals, characters can explore who they’re becoming, and can grow up and learn through the musical’s journey. In this playlist, we’ve compiled a list of all the songs that may remind you of the time where we’re all still trying to figure it out.

From Matilda’s “When I Grow Up,” to Mean Girls’ “I’d Rather Be Me,” these songs revolve around the time where characters are trying to find their way in this world and learn what it means to grow up.
