28 Best Love Quotes From Broadway Musicals

My favorite thing to do when I’m home alone is to blast musical theater show tunes and sing along at the top of my lungs. I always go full out with costumes, props, and set pieces. There’s just something about Broadway musical song lyrics that make you feel on top of the world.

I used to put on a weekly production of Spring Awakening in my bedroom when I was in high school. I have also famously taken over thirty Hamilton-themed SoulCycle classes. I just get so wrapped up in the story and journey a musical album can take you on.

I’m also absolutely addicted to love songs and living out the romantic moments from a Broadway show. I love belting crazy love ballads that take place during the Vietnam war, 19th century Germany, and even hell.

The lyrics of Broadway songs can transport you to any story. You can sing songs about falling in love, marriage, friendship, heartbreak, and self love.

My all time favorite love song to sing is called "Prayer To The Moon" from a show called Vanara. Take a look below at this iconic video of Eva Noblezada recording "Prayer To The Moon" in the recording studio — the song is currently in workshops in New York and will (hopefully) head to Broadway in the future.
