Broadway Songs to Celebrate Independence Day

Broadway Songs to Celebrate Independence Day

Happy Fourth of July! With the Independence Day celebrations around us, we couldn’t help thinking about the Broadway songs that celebrate America. While the theme of the US has been incorporated in many shows, there have also been a few Broadway shows that center American history like the well-known Hamilton, Assassins, or 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, many of them revolving around the leaders of our country.

From West Side Story’s “America” to Hamilton’s “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story,” there’s no better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with musical theatre.

Have a Broadway song about the USA that we missed? Share it with us on Twitter and we might just add it to the list!
