From decades ago to today, from American history to Disney, Broadway soundtracks give us music to sing along with for generations. Here are our picks for the best Broadway musical soundtracks–that you can hear live today!


The “hottest snow on Broadway” brings back the wintery magic we all felt from Disney’s 2013 hit film of the same name. Songwriting couple, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, struck Grammy gold with the film’s soundtrack and chart-topping anthem “Let it Go.” They return with four new songs for the Broadway soundtrack, which also includes music from the film and previous Denver musical production. Idina Menzel left big shoes to fill, but Cassie Levy shines as Elsa with her own soul-searching ballads, “Monster” and “Dangerous to Dream.” Patti Murin (Anna) and Jelani Alladin (Kristoff)’s playful duet, “What Do You Know About Love?” is reminiscent of the film’s “Love is an Open Door.” Anna also gets her own ballad with “True Love.” With these new songs and all the beloved originals, we don’t want to ever let this soundtrack go.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is making history with his hip-hop Broadway phenomenon Hamilton, and its 46-track, Triple Platinum, Grammy-winning soundtrack. Miranda enlisted hip-hop legends, Questlove and the Roots, to help produce the soundtrack. Its 2015 debut was the strongest sales for a cast album in 50 years. It was also the first cast album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Rap Album chart, though Questlove argued its strong pop, rock, and show-tunes elements make it genre bending and “hip hop in spirit” The show’s lack of dialogue means this soundtrack tells nearly the whole story with punchy, thought-provoking lyrics. The opening track, “Alexander Hamilton,” is the most popular and raps on the Founding Father’s upbringing. Other fan favorites include “My Shot,” “The Schuyler Sisters,” and the ‘60s pop-inspired, “You’ll Be Back.” SHOP HAMILTON TICKETS

The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon‘s Grammy-winning soundtrack is a refreshing return to show tunes’ original purpose: making you smile. Lovable lead and missionary, Elder Price (Andrew Rannells), opens with the upbeat and popular, “Hello!” exemplifying the soundtrack’s comedy, religious commentary, and feel-good style. The Los Angeles Times praised, “The songs, often inspired lampoons of contemporary Broadway styles, are as catchy as they are clever.” Other popular tracks include Price’s light-hearted ballad of self-discovery, “I Believe,” and “Turn It Off.” This delightfully zany soundtrack is bound to get listeners laughing, thinking, dancing and singing along.

Anastasia‘s soundtrack is as timeless and haunting as the 1997 animated film. Christy Altomare beautifully sings as the royal Russian title character, accented by the orchestra’s classical Russian influences. The soundtrack balances drama with comedy, along with songs from the film and new ones. Popular new tracks are Anastasia’s new solo, “In My Dreams” and her duet with love interest, Dmitry (Derek Klena), “In a Crowd of Thousands.” Originals, “Once Upon a December” and “Journey to the Past,” maintain their popularity with Altomare’s renditions. Released just last year, this soundtrack already feels like a classic for years to come. SHOP ANASTASIA TICKETS

The Lion King

You know an album is legendary when it has the one and only, Sir Elton John behind it. He teamed up with lyricist Tim Rice to write both the Grammy-winning Broadway and film soundtracks. The Broadway soundtrack keeps classics including “Circle of Life,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” and the playful “Hakuna Matata.” There are also new favorites such as “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and “He Lives in You.” The overall sound is unique and authentic with stronger traditional and modern African elements, including percussion, instruments and chanting.

Prepare for a wild magic carpet ride with beloved classics and dazzling new compositions on Aladdin‘s Broadway soundtrack. Experience the love story with Aladdin (Adam Jacobs) and Jasmine (Courtney Reed)’s duet, “A Whole New World.” Standout, James Monroe Inglehart (Genie), brings comedy with “Friend Like Me” and “Prince Ali” and shines in Robin Williams’ iconic role. With Middle Eastern, jazz and Broadway show-tune influences, this soundtrack transports listeners to the enchanting “Arabian Nights” of Agrabah. SHOP ALADDIN TICKETS
