Hello to Goodbye Broadway Songs

For many people the holidays are, as the song says, the most wonderful time of the year. However, for others, they can be a time filled with emptiness.

At some point during the holiday season, most everyone has to deal with saying goodbye to family and friends.  The “goodbye” may have to last for only a few days, maybe a few weeks, a year, and in some cases, a lifetime—losing a family member and/or a friend during the holiday season can be especially difficult. 

On Broadway there are many ways to say goodbye. Some people are singing about their careers, while others are songs about saying goodbye to the person they love. Some Broadway songs could be about a person dying and wishing they could have done more, and others are about starting over or even just moving on to a new show or career. Broadway songs about saying goodbye could be sad, happy, or somewhere in the middle.   

Whether you’re happy, sad, or somewhere in the middle, be sure to join host Robert Hammond as he says “hello” to the many moods of Broadway goodbye songs.
