For more than 100 years, musical theatre has tugged at the heart-strings and lifted the spirits of millions of people from the very young to the very old. From its roots in operetta and its journey through Vaudeville via Tin Pan Alley, to the glittering walk along Broadway, popular musicals have gifted us with songs for every emotion.
