TGIF Tunes is a weekly feature that will highlight some of Broadway’s best music, from both currently running productions and past fan favorites. Join us every Friday for new playlists that are centered around a variety of unique themes to fit the season.
It is officially Tony season! Now that the nominees are announced, the next five weeks will be spent looking ahead to the big ceremony on June 9th to see who takes home the trophies. While everyone is looking ahead, #TGIF Tunes is going to look back at previous Tony seasons and remember the shows that came before. Each week we’ll take you on a tour of a different decade.
Tony weekend is here! This week, we are closing out our Tonys Throwback by taking you on a tour of some of the most memorable musicals from the 2000s to today. This playlist has a little bit of everything to give you some real Broadway nostalgia. Young Sutton Foster (in her first Tony-winning role) and Aaron Tveit make a playlist appearance alongside some tunes from famous jukebox musicals American Idiot and Jersey Boys. In this playlist we’ll relive Orfeh and Andy Karl’s iconic Legally Blonde moment and Lin Manuel Miranda’s Broadway debut. Are you ready for Sunday? If you’re stuck, Broadway Direct has compiled your go-to guide on how to throw the ultimate Tonys party. If you’ve forgotten, you can also find a list of all of this year’s nominated plays and musicals here. Good luck and happy Tonys!
