What are some shows that you consider to be mediocre/ bad/ even terrible that have had a a number or two that have struck you as been good or great? Here is my most recent example to get us started...- Pretty Woman - You And I (the entire opera scene): While I enjoyed this show more than most, there is no denying that the show is far from perfect. However, I found this particular song and scene to be stunning. A great song (easily the best in the show) with great staging.
Agreed that the opera scene is the best part of Pretty Woman. It almost felt like they had a completely different team come in for that one scene, since it stood out as so good compared to the rest of the show.One that comes to mind: I thought Prince of Broadway was generally terrible, but I still think about Tony Yazbeck's thrilling take on "The Right Girl."

Sadly, I saw Yazbek's understudy when I saw Prince of Broadway, but I heard nothing but great things about Yazbek. I loved him in both On The Town and Finding Neverland.
i despise be more chill but smartphone hour, michael in the bathroom, and more than survive are songs that are so catchy.
I recently read the libretto to BALLROOM and, woof, was that a terrible book. However, I still think "Fifty Percent" is one of the greatest ballads in musical theatre.
"Nobody" from BANDSTAND"Almost Like Being in Love" from BRIGADOON (Sorry...)"I Decided to Marry You" from GENTLEMEN'S GUIDE"Find Your Grail" from SPAMALOT
'Til I Hear You Sing, Love Never DiesI personally actually really enjoy the show; I saw the national tour a few nights ago and was just floored by it. It's such a spectacle, and the cast was incredible. Say what you want about the plot, though. I understand why people, especially longtime POTO fans hate this show as much as they do. That's just me.
"As If We Never Said Goodbye" in Sunset Boulevard
It Shoulda Been You has a couple of bangers. Immediately coming to mind are "Back in the Day", "Albert's Turn", and the title song, which includes one of my favorite lyrics:Even just to know you tried'llMake me feel less suicidal
"Once Upon a Time" from Brooklyn"Astonishing" and "Some Things Are Meant to be" from Little Women"Give It Up" from Lysistrata Jones
"Dancin' In The Devil's Shoes" - Leap of Faith
"Raining" - Rocky
Wholeheartedly endorse a lot that's already been posted, but I'll add:"It's Your Wedding Day" from THE WEDDING SINGER"We'll Take a Glass Together" from GRAND HOTEL (a score which I have come to appreciate a LOT more since last year's wonderful ENCORES production)....and let me just agree that GHOST's "With You" really IS a great theatre song.
Keala Settle's song Joy of the Lord in Hands on a Hardbody.
Poor Little Person - Henry Sweet Henry
^ That was my very first thought as well, Kad.How Now, Dow Jones has Step to the Rear and the truly delightful Gawk, Tousle and Shucks.
