These are difficult times. No question. TV, the internet, radio and even your email inboxes are saturated with distressing news about coronavirus and COVID-19. Although it’s absolutely necessary that we heed the warnings and do everything we can to protect ourselves and others, we must also allow some joy and light into our lives. So to keep our spirits up, members of the Broadway’s Best for Great Performances Facebook group shared the show tunes that always put a smile on their faces. While many of you are home working, cooking, cleaning or caring for your kids, turn on this playlist. We hope it brings you happiness.
