Vote for the Greatest Showtune Ever!

DO YOU LOVE MUSICALS?

Do you have a favourite show tune? It’s time to vote!

BritishTheatre.com would like to invite you to contribute to our poll of the of the Greatest Show Tune Ever.

BritishTheatre.com is out to discover the public’s choice of BEST SHOW TUNE EVER. For over a century theatre has bought us show tunes which have become some of the greatest standards or songs which continue to resonate for all manner of different reasons.

From Old Man River to Memory to My Shot, from writers like Stephen Sondheim to Andrew Lloyd Webber to Tim Rice and Richard Rodgers, these are songs that have survived the decades and continue to be sung across the world.

Many of these songs have endured over the decades, they have moved us and invoke memories every time we hear them and we thought it was time that we celebrate them individually.
