This month’s Broadway web is devoted to the 11 o’clock number. Usually the penultimate song in a Broadway show, these hits bring down the house. From classic songs like “Rose’s Turn” and “Being Alive” to lesser known ones from shows like Ballroom and Caroline, Or Change, they are all show-stoppers.
Listen to these 11 o’clock numbers anytime over at 8tracks.com/broadway-web/the-broadway-web-11-o-clock-numbers
